The award-winning hit solo show written and performed by Gioia De Cari, and directed by Miriam Eusebio.  Created as a response to former Harvard President Lawrence Summers’ now-infamous suggestion that women are less represented than men in the sciences because of innate gender differences, Truth Values: One Girl’s Romp Through M.I.T.’s Male Math Maze 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.
