The touching human story behind an important scientific discovery.

Directed by Elizabeth Margolius

Sponsored by Main Street Market

With warm-hearted wit and infectious joy, Silent Sky tells the riveting true story of Henrietta Swan Leavitt, a pioneering scientist in an age when women couldn’t even vote. Henrietta and her coworkers at Harvard Observatory in 1893 are human “computers,” and much more than mere data entry clerks. They were the woman who measured the stars. As an amateur astronomer, Henrietta is not allowed to touch a telescope, yet she makes significant observations on the universe and influences the work of Edwin Hubble, among others. Over a century later, these ground-breaking discoveries about the universe are still vital today. If you liked the movie Hidden Figures, you wouldn’t want to miss this “luminously beautiful play” that will change how you look at both the heavens and the earth.

Ticket Prices:

$40, $43 & $46.

Show Times:

8PM Tuesday – Saturday and 7:30PM on Sunday except September 1st at 4PM.        https://www.peninsulaplayers.com/performances/2019-plays/silent-sky/
