Silent Sky" is a play that tells the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, an astronomer ahead of her time who worked at Harvard University as a human computer, mapping the stars but receiving no scientific credit in 1900.The play is a period piece that imagines Leavitt's inner world against the backdrop of World War I, Einstein's discoveries, and the suffragette movement It is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale, providing laughs, connection, and the solid common sense to treat the audience as intelligent enough to follow both the science and human relationships. The dialogue is beautiful and funny, and the play as a whole is incredibly inspiring, placing a spotlight on a group of women that have been forgotten by history and elevating their stories.
