International City Theater Presents Silent Sky
Date: Wednesday, August 23 2017 to Sunday, September 10 2017
Location: Beverly O'Neil Theater
The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries. When she begins to work at the Harvard Observatory, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned male astronomer. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both scientific and social progress, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the Heavens and Earth.
