Indian Hills Theatre: They Promised Her the Moon

Indian Hills Theatre: They Promised Her the Moon

Jerrie Cobb, one of the famed Mercury 13, whose test scores surpassed many of the male astronauts including John Glenn during rigorous psychological and physical testing in the early days of the country's space program was almost the first woman in space. Cobb was reaching for the moon but hit the glas stratosphere, blocked by gender, the notions of sisterhood, and colliding egos. They Promised Her the Moon by Laurel Ollstein tells the inspiring true story of this exceptional and unjustly overlooked woman and the powerful forces that kept her from reaching orbit.

Contains some strong language. Dr. Jennifer Boyenga & Dr. Ray Slavens, Directors
