The fascinating story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, a woman “computer” living in an age when women could neither vote nor express an original idea. Despite not being allowed to touch a telescope, Leavitt and her colleagues at the Harvard Observatory made ground-breaking discoveries about the universe that remain vital over a century later. Through fierce sisterly love, early feminism and universe revealing science this beautiful play reveals how a group of extraordinary women changed the way we understand both the heavens and the Earth.

In this adaptation of one of The Bard’s best comedies, we meet Roz and Celia, trapped on a farm with Celia’s bigoted father, Duke Frederick, and their strange farmhand Touchstone. They quickly decide they must flee to the magical City of Arden! Here they will meet an array of characters including angry drag queens, bawdy babes outside of the gender binary, haus mothers, and even DIVINE herself. In this whimsical queer rewrite of the hilarious classic, we see the persistence of chosen family, queer liberation, and the obvious fact that LOVE is LOVE!
