Synopsis

Silent Sky is the true story of 19th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt.  The play explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, a time when a woman had to choose between her passion for science or family. Written with humor and wit, this play tenderly shows us how these early pioneers broke down barriers for  all women to follow.
