UW-Fond du Lac Theatre Dept “Silent Sky” Spring Production

March 14, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$6 – $12

The true love story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt. When Henrietta begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. . .SILENT SKY explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them.

“Lauren Gunderson’s luminously beautiful play SILENT SKY is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line: Heavenly.”
~Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Directed by Richard Gustin
