The Play

The poignant true story of a woman's dedication to the stars, and the human touch that makes life under a vast universe beautiful and timeless.

The true story of early 20th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, a brilliant, headstrong pioneer who struggled for recognition in the male-dominated world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. "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.

A celestial romance and true story of discovery.
