Audition Description

Ada and the Engine is a work by The Revolutionists playwright, Lauren Gunderson.

As the British Industrial Revolution dawns, young Ada Byron Lovelace (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 might not live to see. A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.

  • Role #1 - Ada Byron Lovelace

    She has the mind of a mathematician and the heart of a poet. She is fueled by curiosity and joy, but is constantly battling stress and a painful diagnosis of ovarian cancer. She commits to her passions fully. She tries to follow the rules of her day, but has no problem asserting herself. She has been weak her whole life, but her creativity and acumen strengthens her. She is a mother of three and is friends with her husband but not in love with him. She harbors a sadness from growing up without a father. She thinks that he would have liked her, been proud of her. She will never know. She adores babbage and has always wondered what would have become of her is she married him instead. When she dreams she dreams of impossible things that only the future will see. She sings.

  • Role #2 - Charles Babbage

    Can be a charming and debonair host, and also a short-tempered grump. He is brilliant but competitive. His salons are the hot ticket in London and he loves being the smartest man in any room. He is bruised from losing his wife early in their marriage. He has and never will remarry. When he met Ada he did not treat her as a silly girl, but upon hearing her ideas he embraced her. He loves her too. But their timing was never right. Both of them could usually manage their affections when working together… usually. He is there when she dies.

  • Role #3 - Lord Byron

    He is adventurous in every way – artistically, emotionally, sexually. He is contradictory genius - proud but sensitive, fiery and flirtatious but married to a cold woman, regretful for abandoning his child but impetuous and impulsive, always running away from the people he loves. But when he believes in something (whether women or words or the world), you have never seen such passion on display. He trembles with it. It electrifies him. When he thinks of Ada, he cannot contain his love and sorrow. He knows he will never see her again.

  • Role #5 - Lady Anabella Byron

    She pretty much hates everything. Since lord byron walked out on her and their month-old baby girl, she has thought that the world was out to humiliate her. She disapproves of everything ada does, except marrying the man she chose for her. She is a cold mother, but one who still expects respect and praise. She has always waited for the poet in ada to emerge so she can slap it back down. Refuses to give ada what she needs – money, support, love.
