This play explores the inspiration for Isaac Newton's amazing discoveries in 1664, personifying it in the form of two young girls whose playful interaction leads to the results we remember Newton for today. The play premiered in Atlanta, where Lauren Gunderson lives and has written other award winning plays about science and the South. The script is available in a book along with the script for Background, about the work of astrophysicist Ralph Alpher that may also be of interest to visitors to this Website.
