In the play, Dr. Eleanor Kiesler is finally doing the important work she’s been dreaming of for years. But as that work starts to destroy her life, mysterious radio transmissions begin barging into her home. Can she find the balance she needs to keep it together? And what bearing does the life of Hollywood legend and genius Hedy Lamarr have on all of this?

“The Distance Between the Waves” is co-sponsored by Missouri S&T’s 150th anniversary committee. The play is free to attend and donations to the Alpha Psi Omega student organization are encouraged. For more information or to donate, please contact Madeline Lechner, S&T student, at or

Missouri S&T’s 150th anniversary celebration honors our university’s history and celebrates its future. Events will continue through November 2021, which will mark the 150th anniversary of the first day of classes at Missouri S&T, which was then known as the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy.
