Repertory Philippines Silent Sky Is Back on Stage This February 2019
Silent Sky, the critically-acclaimed play by America’s most produced playwright Lauren Gunderson, is back on stage for a limited encore performance line up this February 1 to 10, 2019 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
Based on the real-life story of one of the greatest unsung heroes of the science history, Reine Productions, in cooperation with Repertory Philippines, tells the story of Henrietta Levitt, a woman who battled tremendous societal pressure to give up her passion for astronomy, which was heavily dominated by males during the early 1920s.
Her perseverance, dedication, and patience on her research led her to discover one of astronomy’s biggest breakthrough.
This is the second production of Silent Sky, which first premiered last March 2018 at the Onstage Theater in commemoration of the International Women’s Day.
The Silent Sky’s artistic team, composed of Philstage Gawad Buhay awardees Joey Mendoza (production design), John Batalla (lighting design), and Jethro Joaquin (sound design), together with the original cast members Cathy Azanza-Dy, Caisa Borromeo, Naths Everett, and Topper Fabregas, who also steps in as assistant director, is back to reprise their roles.
This also marks the much-awaited return of renowned actress, screenwriter, and producer Bibeth Orteza to the Philippine stage, who will tackle the role of the brilliant and exacting astronomer Annie Cannon.
