Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson with a Talkback by Dr. Todd Timberlake
While many male astronomers receive credit for their discoveries, seldom is heard of the women who pioneered the way before them. Silent Sky tells the real-life story of 19th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt and her contributions to science, all as she balances dealing with health complications, familial obligations and social limitations. A play dedicated to uncovering the history of the stars and restoring the voices that were once lost.
