The Royal Astronomical Society commissioned The Way to the Stars by Time Will Tell Theatre to mark 100 years since women were first allowed to become Fellows.

The Way to the Stars is a dramatization of the history of female astronomers, leading up to the decision to finally admit women on an equal basis to men in 1916.

The play was first performed at the Ordinary Meeting of the RAS in January 2016.
