Silent Sky opens this weekend, Friday Sept 14 and runs through Sept 29.
Based on the true story and science of early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory, Silent Sky explores the life of astronomer Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own, working alongside Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place.
“Lauren Gunderson’s luminously beautiful play Silent Sky is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line: Heavenly.” — Atlanta Journal–Constitution
