Ford’s Theatre Society and the National Park Service closed the historic site starting March 14. That closure currently extends through May 17. Our production of “Guys and Dolls” has been postponed to spring 2021.
“What really made me want to write a play about Henrietta is that her story was not only about one brilliant woman but an entire cohort of women who [were] Harvard 'computers.' This was a story about a sisterhood.” – Lauren Gunderson
"The play is a beautiful piece of theatre. A feminist, historical fiction told sweetly and wondrously. We will tell that story and, in telling that story, we will surface the risk. The idea of Risking Heaven to Find Heaven— that is at the heart of 'Silent Sky.'" -Seema Sueko
