Silent Sky - reprise!

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.

Spring 2017 Show Updates

Silent Sky Returns May 19-28

Silver Spring is pleased to bring back, by popular demand, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson. “Lift your soul and broaden your mind” with this “masterpiece of wonder, humor, and bittersweet discovery of the universe inside and outside of ourselves.” (Thanks for these kind words to DC Metro Theatre Arts and Maryland Theatre Guide.)

Silent Sky celebrates the joy of discovery as it explores the life of Henrietta Leavitt, a nearly forgotten giant of astronomy, and her coworkers and fellow voyagers on her trip to the stars, Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming.
