Reine Productions, with Repertory Philippines, brings the critically acclaimed play “Silent Sky” back to the stage for limited encore performances this February.

Written by America’s most produced playwright, Lauren Gunderson, “Silent Sky” is a poignant retelling of the life of Henrietta Leavitt, one of the greatest unsung heroes in the history of science.

Leavitt was among the Harvard Computers—women hired by the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s to analyze and catalog every observable star in the heavens. She, along with Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming, were among the first to blaze a trail for women in the heavily male-dominated field of astronomy.

Repertory Philippines’ production of “Silent Sky” premiered in March 2018 at Onstage Theater in celebration of International Women’s Day. This restaging at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium once again brings together the artistic team composed of Philstage Gawad Buhay awardees Joey Mendoza (production design), John Batalla (lighting design) and Jethro Joaquin (sound design).
