Main Street Theater presents Silent Sky
Main Street Theater will open its 40th Anniversary Season with the Texas premiere of Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson. This production also marks the Houston premiere of any of Gunderson’s works.
Silent Sky is a new play about Henrietta Swan Leavitt and the real women “computers” working at Harvard Observatory at the dawn of modern astronomy. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society unaccustomed to strong women in a man’s world.
