INSIGNIFICANT, by Sean Michael Welch and directed by Rachel Tamarin. A perfect play for Women’s History Month. National Women's History Alliance has announced the Women's History Theme “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” INSIGNIFICANT does just that.
At Harvard University in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Cecilia Payne, Annie Jump Cannon, and the group of women known as the “Harvard Computers” overcame prejudice, denigration, and opposition to change the course of modern astronomy and developed revolutionary systems to chart and measure stars that remain in use today. INSIGNIFICANT charts their battles for recognition, respect, and equality are still being fought by women in the 21st century.
