There will be a Women and Science panel following the matinee on Oct. 1.
A whip-smart, headstrong pioneer at the dawn of modern astronomy, Henrietta Leavitt must leave her Wisconsin home to pursue her dream of studying the night sky. But she soon discovers that the distance to the stars is less than the distance to acceptance in the male-dominated world of turn-of-the-century science. In this magical story of a scientist’s quest for the sky in a society determined to keep a woman in her place, Henrietta and her female peers change the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
This play demands a place at the table for the forgotten women of science and is written by one of our finest contemporary playwrights, Lauren Gunderson. laurengunderson.com
