Silent Sky

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Professor Brendon Fox
March 7-9, 2017

Set in the early 20th century, Silent Sky tells the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, an astronomer who overcame great odds and made incredible contributions to her field. Its cast of five – made up mostly of women – create a constellation of smart, passionate people surrounding Henrietta as she struggles to understand the universe and her own heart. It’s funny, smart, and full of great dialogue.
