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.
