Join A Classic Theatre (ACT) at The Waterworks when they present Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Michael Lipp.  With warm-hearted wit and infectious joy, Silent Sky tells the riveting true story of Henrietta Leavitt, a pioneering scientist in an age when women couldn’t even vote.

When Henrietta Leavitt 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. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt 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.

Henrietta Leavitt changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

A mesmerizing drama that’s full of wonder, humor and heart.

“…sheer magic [is] in Lauren Gunderson’s Silent Sky… Gunderson [writes] economically and with bursts of smart, infectious humor.” San Francisco Chronicle
