Silent Sky is Lauren Gunderson’s vivid astronomy origin story about Henrietta Leavitt, whose early work at Harvard taught us how to measure the universe. The Atlanta Journal Constitution called it a “luminously beautiful play,” and “an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale.” A story of family, friends, and choices, of persistence, love, and longing, this delightful night in the theatre also makes the recent photos from the Webb and Hubble telescopes seem even more amazing.

This production is the vehicle for WFU Theatre’s international design competition, aWAKEn, and features the dazzling work of Egyptian scenic designer Héba Hicham Elkomy.
