Silent Sky: A Scientific Romance at TheatreWorks
Astonishing discoveries await Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. But this brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle for recognition in the man’s world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. 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. Written by Lauren Gunderson with music by Jenny Giering, the show will be premiering at TheatreWorks from January 15 through February 9, 2014.
