April 9 – 25, 2021 – Real life scientist Henrietta Leavitt became one of the most prominent voices in the field of astronomy in the early 1900’s. Her work was the basis of our ability to measure the distance between stars. In Silent Sky, award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries that changed the way we understand both the heavens and earth.
“[Silent Sky is] a startling, entertaining true story”
“…a lively, funny, accessible play alive with interesting ideas.”
“… an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line? Heavenly.”
April 9 – 25 – Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday April 18 and 25 at 2:30 p.m. in the VK Garage Theater.
