I tumbled out of that airplane... with the stars in my eyes.

Jerrie Cobb, The Mercury 13


Mar 4–29, 2020  

By Laurel Ollstein

Directed by Giovanna Sardelli


The space race, 1962. With the sky no longer the limit, astronauts circle the heavens and a world record-holding pilot stands ready to join them, forever altering the course of history. If only America will let her. This fascinating theatrical hit from our New Works Festival chronicles the incredible true story of Jerrie Cobb, a woman who dreamt of stars, only to wake in a country that couldn’t see the light.
