The Effluent Engine tells the story of a Haitian spy Jessaline Dumonde, as she seeks help with a new invention in New Orleans in order to prevent France from recapturing Haiti in the decades following the Haitian Revolution. Jessaline enlists Eugenie Rillieux, the sister of a wealthy Creole scientist, in helping her create an engine that can run off the gases contained within the waste created by the rum distillation process. Their mission quickly becomes more dangerous as a racist organization attempts to steal their plans for themselves. And through all of this science and drama, the two women find love with one another.

"It is a fantastic story by one of today’s most lauded authors working in science fiction." - Book-It Repertory Theatre
