Academic Theatre at CCBC Catonsville to Present THE RUBY SUNRISE, 11/8-12Academic Theatre at CCBC Catonsville to Present THE RUBY SUNRISE, 11/8-12
by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2013

'The Ruby Sunrise' is a compelling and interesting take on a little known piece of television trivia -- Philo Farnsworth, a farm boy and self-taught scientist, developed the first electronic TV system, but General David Sarnoff took the credit. Rinne Groff's play, which loosely chronicles the incident, moves from a farm in Indiana, where Ruby as a young girl struggles to turn her dream of the first all-electrical television system into a reality, and then jumps forward to a McCarthy-era New York TV studio where Ruby's heirs fight over how her story should be told. Groff adds more complexity by making the major characters female and imagining how women would have handled the phenomenon of television: from early idealism and sparks of genius, to promises fulfilled and compromises brokered, and beyond.
