Insignificant

by Sean Michael Welch

directed by Colleen Britt

New York, NY - Infinite Variety Productions introduces its first original play, written by Sean Michael Welch and directed by Colleen Britt, onstage at the Kraine Theater December 3 – December 19, 2015. It is 1925, and young yet ingenious Cecilia Payne seeks guidance from veteran astronomer Annie Jump Cannon on her doctoral thesis. Sensing Cecilia’s doubts about her unbelievable findings, Annie leads Cecilia through her own struggle as a brilliant female scientist in a male world. Fiercely sarcastic and bittersweet, Insignificant tells the true stories of the women behind the stars and their astounding but uncelebrated triumphs in the field of astronomy. Defiantly unconventional, the play reminds us that women have to break all the rules to make history.
