Mind-expanding, heart-expanding. A celestial romance and true story of discovery.


A soaring, female-led science drama about Henrietta Swan Leavitt and the forgotten women's faces of science working at the dawn of modern astronomy to classify the stars. This luminously beautiful play explores a woman's place as defined by men in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries. With music and math bursting forth onstage, Henrietta and her female peers change the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

"In Silent Sky, a pioneer claims her place among astronomy's stars." Boston Globe
