Coming to the Redfern: Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through MIT’s Male Math Maze

From Jackie Hooper, Redfern Arts Center:

Continuing its 30th anniversary season, the Redfern will present a hilarious solo show in which algorithms and sexism collide. Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through MIT’s Male Math Maze will be performed on Thursday, February 2, at 7:30 p.m. Inspired by the actual experiences of actress-playwright and recovering mathematician Gioia De Cari, this comical one-woman play follows De Cari’s misadventures as a female PhD candidate in the elite boys’ club of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s math department in the 1980s.

Truth Values offers a humorous, scathing, insightful, and ultimately uplifting look at the challenges of being a professional woman in a male-dominated field.

The show will be followed by a panel discussion with de Cari and Keene State math and gender studies department chairs Karen Standish, chair of the math department, Sara Hottinger, chair of women’s and gender studies, and Dottie Morris, chief officer of Diversity and Multiculturalism. This performance is funded in part by a grant from the KSC Campus Commission on Diversity and Multiculturalism.

Tickets range from $10 to $25 and can be purchased by calling the Box Office, 603-358-2168 or ordering online.
