• Henrietta Leavitt, age starts in 30s, ends in 50s. Brilliant, determined, meticulous, excited, a dreamer, hard of hearing (wears a period hearing aid), has never much cared for the “status quo.”
• Margaret Leavitt, age starts in 30s, ends in 50s. A homebody, creative, genuine, sweet-natured, realist. Henrietta’s sister. (Ability to sing and pretend to play the piano a plus.)
• Peter Shaw, age starts in 30s, ends in 50s. The apprentice to the head astronomer at Harvard, reserved, his views have never really been challenged prior to the events of the play. He is the supervisor of the women at the observatory and in love with Henrietta, as she is with him.
• Annie Cannon, age starts in 40s, ends in 60s. A leader of the group of women in the observatory, tough, terse, sure of herself, grows into a firebrand for the suffrage movement.
