Silent Sky
Ingraham High School Little Theater

Share this event:

Silent Sky, by Lauren Gunderson, was first published in 2015, and debuted by the First Folio Theater in Chicago two years later. The show responds to themes of justice, obligation, and feminism with historical nuance and the backbone of a true story. Based on the life of the underappreciated astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt, the play ties imaginative technical aspects to a small cast of devoted actors.

Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Skys talented and devoted heroine, was an astronomer at the Harvard College Observatory for the first decades of the 20th century. Leavitts discoveries in that period were numerous, but chief among them was her work relating to the luminosity of Cepheid Stars, from which she derived a method of measuring the Earths distance from other galaxies. This breakthrough changed the course of global astrology and made possible the work of later men like Edwin Hubble, yet the majority of her awards and honors were awarded posthumously. The nation was not kind to ambitious women, and her career was truncated by her death by cancer in 1924. The world is cruel in its vastness, but thanks to Henrietta Leavitt it is a little more knowable.
