“It’s a man’s world” they say, looking at Earth. But beyond that, the vast expanse we call ‘space’, is largely unknown, unclaimed; a free for all. At least, it could be if my boss stopped calling me ‘sweetheart’.
Eve always knew she belonged in the stars, but those on Earth keep bringing her down. Watch her grow up and grow wiser about how rocket science is the easy part, but being treated equally isn’t.
A powerful piece of verbatim theatre, It’s Not Rocket Science uses interviews from over twenty female aerospace professionals and presents their experiences navigating through this male-dominated industry.
