No Belles

No Belles by Portal Theatre

For two performances only at the Headwaters!

In 2013, The New York Times began an obituary: She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job and took eight years off from work to raise three children. Never mind that she was, quite literally, a well respected rocket scientist.

The story of women in science is a story of broken barriers, shifting social attitudes, and groundbreaking discoveries. In No Belles, Portal Theatre weaves together moving stories of some of the most remarkable women to don a lab coat. Women who, with determination, persistence, and a love of the work, changed the face of science.
