Truth Values

Credentials: September 20-21, 2012

Created in response to former Harvard President Lawrence Summers’ infamous suggestion that women are less represented than men in the sciences because of innate gender differences, TRUTH VALUES is a true-life tale that offers a humorous, scathing, insightful and ultimately uplifting look at the challenges of being a professional woman in a male-dominated field. Writer/performer and “recovering mathematician” Gioia De Cari brings to life more than 30 characters in a hilarious and deeply touching performance that has earned rave reviews from critics and stirred audiences to standing ovations.
