William Woods University is continuing its Mainstage Season Series this week with performances of the play "Silent Sky."
This play is about Henrietta Leavitt working at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900's. She is restricted in what work she can do and works for a renowned astronomer who does not respect the work of women, according to a release. The story examines how social and scientific progress are connected with each other.
"Silent Sky" is based on a true story.
Performances of "Silent Sky" will begin Thursday, Dec. 1, and continue until Saturday, Dec. 3. All performances will take place at Dulany Auditorium on William Woods campus.
The first performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. today. Additional performances will also be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. A matinee performance will be on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Tickets for "Silent Sky" can be purchased online.
The Mainstage Season Series will continue at William Woods in the spring, when "These Shining Lives" will be performed from Feb. 23-25. "The Sweet Delilah Swim Club" will conclude the season on Apr. 20-22.
