Silent Sky

Regional Premiere
January 20 - February 12, 2017
A new play by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Kelsey Leigh Ervi

Sponsored by Atmos Energy, Slalom Consulting and Dallas Women's Foundation

This new play by Lauren Gunderson blends humor and romance in a riveting exploration of the life and career of celebrated astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt (1868-1921), who fearlessly asserted herself in the male-driven, turn-of-the-century world of science and academia. A true story of discovery, Silent Sky invites us to join Leavitt and the real women "computers" working at the dawn of modern astronomy as they explore the magic of the universe in what is an historic journey of love, science and determination.
