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.

Over the course of the 80-minute solo show, writer/performer and “recovering mathematician” Gioia De Cari creates “refreshing delights of humor, even compassion” (EDGE Media) as she charmingly brings to life more than 30 characters “each rendered on an empty stage that hints at the countless stories similar to hers but untold.” (TimeOut New York). Winner of a New York International Fringe Festival Overall Excellence Award for Best Solo Show, the play has been presented at more than 50 theaters and performing arts centers throughout the United States, including the Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York, the La Jolla Playhouse, and USC’s celebrated Visions and Voices Arts and Humanities Series, among many others.

Truth Values has been embraced nationally as a conversation catalyst on the crucial topic of gender, diversity and unconscious bias in the male-dominated STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).

Join us after the show for a curated chat with Gioia and STEM field panelists. This talkback panel will run for 30 minutes.

The multifaceted Gioia De Cari is a transformative artist and "recovering mathematician" who has made significant contributions in theater and classical music through her focus on the synergy between science and the arts. She is creator of the critically-acclaimed award-winning play Truth Values, which has been embraced as a conversation catalyst on important issues of unconscious bias in science, technology, engineering and mathematics throughout the United States.
