If I tell you that Silent Sky, the new play at Steel Beam Theatre, is about a smart, young, educated woman with a passion for astronomy, I won't be doing it justice. If I tell you that it is a play about loving sisters separated by that passion but later reunited by time and circumstance, I won't be doing it justice. If I tell you that it is about marginalized women persisting while the male-dominated world diminishes their contributions, I won't be doing it justice.

Lauren Gunderson's play about Henrietta Leavitt.
