They Promised Her the Moon
written by Laurel Ollstein
directed by Valentina Fratti
Jerrie Cobb, one of the famed Mercury 13, whose test scores surpassed many of the male astronauts during rigorous psychological and physical testing in the early days of the country’s space program was almost the first American in space. Cobb was reaching for the moon but hit the glass stratosphere, blocked not only by her gender but by notions of sisterhood and colliding egos.
