Silent Sky (Mar. 22 – Apr. 7)

Silent Sky

By Lauren Gunderson

Produced by Valerie Russell | Directed by Valerie Russell


The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth. 

Silent Sky is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars and the human touch that makes life under the cast sky beautiful and timeless.  It is a beautiful and insightful piece of theatre.
