Have you ever been driven by your own genius to pursue a dream that would change the lives of everyone on the planet?
Ruby did so when she invented the first all-electric television, only to sink into despair when she never received credit for her contributions.
Playwright Rinne Groff examines Ruby's rise and fall, along with the history of television, with the right combination of humor, wit, and emotional resonance to make this play a joy to read and to perform.
Rinne also reminds us that it takes a "persistence of vision" to make one's dreams manifest. Wonderful monologues and ambitious scenes all throughout!
Characters: 3 men, 4 women, with doubling
Scenes/Monologues: Passionate monologues and scenes.
