Group 18 Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson
Genre: Play, Site-specific, Historical
Silent Sky is inspired by the true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, a wildly intelligent young woman determined to find the answers to astronomy’s biggest questions—without ever touching a telescope. Along the way, she must face choices between her personal relationships, and that of the greater good to understand who, why, and where we are in the universe.
“Who are we, why are we—where are we?” -Henrietta, Act 1, Scene 1
