|With the help of playwright/director Isabella Gregor, Djerassi updated his play Calculus (Newton's Whores). The plot still revolves around the question of priority on the invention of calculus, and especially whether Newton used unfair influences to get a ruling in his favor against Leibniz. The main alteration from the 2004 original is the addition of a love interest for the two playwrights in the play. The play was performed in Vienna in 2009 and a review is available in the online journal bridges.
