by Stuart Hoar

The UK premiere of a moving and fascinating story about the clash between love and ambition, Bright Star, is based on the life of ground-breaking astronomer, Beatrice Tinsley.

Astrophysicist, wife, mother, daughter and gifted musician, Beatrice was a brilliantly creative and passionate woman whose work has profoundly influenced our understanding of the universe. But in the male dominated science establishment of the 70’s, Beatrice struggles against prejudice and views of her place in the world. She proves to be right – but success comes at great personal cost.
