From the Inside Flap:

Hailed by The Boston Globe as "a gem," The Ruby Sunrise begins when a 1920s tomboy feverishly works to develop her latest invention - a little something called "television." Twenty-five years later, her daughter will stop at nothing to bring her mother's incredible story to life during TV's Golden Age. But will it get the truth it deserves? "A finely tuned portrait of television's early days. [Groff] has managed to skillfully blend past and present." (Providence Journal)

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Asher Book, Katharine Leonard, Kate McGregor-Stewart, Elisabeth Moss, Jason Ritter, Kate Steele and Henry Winkler.

The Ruby Sunrise is part of L.A. Theatre Works' Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Major funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to enhance public understanding of science and technology in the modern world.

From AudioFile:

This enjoyable, somewhat Capra-esque, play about integrity and pertinacity in the television industry was recorded before a studio audience. In the 1920s, a rural tomboy invents television. In the 1950s, her illegitimate daughter strives to have her mothers untold story dramatized on TV, fighting pressure from her ambitious lover/collaborator and philistine boss. The earnest, high-energy production provides an amiable listen, despite weak performances in a couple of key roles. Its most interesting feature is an informative postlude interview with two broadcast historians. Ostensibly about hapless Philo Farnsworth, whose career inspired the play, the discussion touches significantly on early live television drama, which possessed a vigor and freshness long ago forsaken by boob-tube magnates, to the incalculable loss of todays viewing public.
