About this show

A celestial romance and true story of discovery, this riveting new play explores the life and career of Henrietta Swan Leavitt (1868-1921) as she fearlessly asserts herself in the male-dominated world of early astronomy. Hired by the Harvard Observatory as a human "computer" to catalog the stars, Henrietta's story plays out against a landscape of early feminism and universe-revealing science, reminding us all of what we can achieve when we allow curiosity and wonder into our lives.
