Based on true events, this play tells the story of Dr. Frances Kelsey’s battle with a powerful drug company to prevent thalidomide from being approved for release in the United States. Concerned about the drug’s potential effect on pregnant women, she resists the drug company’s attacks to forces her to back down. Miss is about the challenges women face in science and the ability of one uncompromising woman to change history and save lives.
