Written by Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Natasha Boyd

Ever wondered who mapped and measured the stars we see at night? Silent Sky tells the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, nominated but ineligible for the 1925 Nobel Prize. She worked for decades at Harvard University alongside Williamina Fleming and Annie Jump Canon,

in Dr. Edward Pickering’s “harem of human computers”. Their work involved mapping the stars WITHOUT Harvard’s telescope, and Leavitt’s focus on Cepheid stars would have a profound impact on the field of astronomy forevermore. Intertwining religion and science, love and ambition, and women’s limited workplace options inspiring their fight for suffrage, this powerful and wondrous tale is sure to entertain and move you.

By arrangement with Music Theatre International Australasia Pty Ltd, on behalf of Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
