Silent Sky

Silver Spring Stage is honored to present the Washington-area premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s play about a nearly forgotten giant of astronomy. Henrietta Leavitt’s singular passion to answer the question “Where are we”? produced the foundational science that allowed others--men, of course--to measure the universe.
