About

This event has been canceled.

Lauren Gunderson's funny and charming play tells the true story of Henrietta Leavitt, a woman who wanted nothing but to be allowed to work in the field of her choice, astronomy. But when she began at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, women weren't even allowed to touch a telescope. Join us for Silent Sky, and be inspired by Henrietta's fight to take credit for her own groundbreaking discovery.
