UGA Theatre: Silent Sky

Cellar Theatre

Silent Sky brings to life the untold story of Henrietta Leavitt, a brilliant astronomer whose groundbreaking discoveries changed our understanding of the cosmos. Fueled by determination, intellect, and an unyielding spirit, Henrietta struggles against the societal expectations of the early 20th century in Lauren Gunderson’s thought-provoking meditation on perseverance, the pursuit of knowledge, and the indomitable human spirit.

SILENT SKY is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (
