The Women Who Mapped the Stars

By Joyce Van Dyke

Directed by Sara Valentine

It's the end of the19th century. Employed for half a man’s salary to analyze astronomical data at the Harvard College Observatory, four courageous women of science pave the way for the next generation of astronomers and astrophysicists, including Cambridge University trained scholar, Cecilia Payne. In this heart-warming and time-bending story taken from true events, we experience the struggles and achievements of these remarkable women who imagined the impossible and changed the way we see the universe and ourselves. A Maine premiere by Boston-based playwright, Joyce Van Dyke.
