A new play about the world’s first computer programmer

As the Industrial Revolution dawns, young
Ada (daughter of the flamboyant and notorious Lord Byron) sees the boundless creative potential in the “analytic engines” of her friend and soul-mate, Charles Babbage, inventor of the first mechanical computer. Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge - a world she will not live to see.
