Making Democracy Work



League members enjoyed Insight Theatre Company's production of Silent Sky on Oct. 21. The inspirational drama by Lauren Gunderson spotlights astrophysicist Henrietta Leavitt who worked as a female computer at the Harvard Observatory and made a significant discovery about stars in the early 1900s. The audience cheered when her colleague Annie Cannon (played by Elizabeth Ann Townsend) appeared on stage as a suffragist wearing a Votes for Women sash. Artistic director Maggie Ryan, UMSL astrophysicist Dr. Erica Gibb and the fabulous cast answered questions after the show.
