April 11–13 & 18–20

Lauren Gunderson has been one of the most produced playwrights in America (American Theatre Magazine) since 2015, topping the list thrice, including 22/23.

Silent Sky is a true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, who explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific and heart-bound discoveries. With music and math bursting forth onstage, Henrietta and her female peers change the way we understand both the heavens and the Earth. It is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars, and the human touch that makes life under the vast sky beautiful and timeless.

All shows at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. on April 20.
