    Silent Sky at Arsenal Center for the Arts

Silent Sky

Arsenal Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal Street Watertown

A period drama about feminism, scientific advancement and the fight to cement one's legacy in the face of adversity, Silent Sky is set in the early 1900s and follows real-life Cambridge astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, an aspiring scientist who joins the Harvard Observatory's all-female "human computer" team. The women are kept behind the scenes and are told to keep their ideas and theories to themselves. As Henrietta navigates these impossible waters, she tries to keep her personal life and family obligations in focus. Presented by Watertown's Flat Earth Theatre, Silent Sky examines a woman's place in professional society during a time of both historic discovery and endless oppression, when a woman's ideas were dismissed until a man could claim credit for them. See it now at the Mosesian Center for the Arts (formerly known as the Arsenal Center for the Arts).
