Henrietta Leavitt dreams of being an astronomer but isn’t allowed to touch a telescope. Be transported to the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s and discover what really happened in Henrietta’s battle for recognition. This true story is told in a family-friendly production directed by Rebecca Holderness (Einstein’s Dreams, Crowns, Twelfth Night). Burning Coal plans to host a variety of events around this production in collaboration with area STEM organizations, including the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
