WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Peppered with Bertolt Brecht's unique theatricality, this gripping tale transports audience members to a time when revolutionary ideas were springing to life as quickly as the inquisitions that tried to squelch them. The play was penned between 1937 and 1939, in the shadow of facism and the increasing power of the Nazis, while Brecht was in exile from his German homeland. Life of Galileo resonates as a powerful story about a conflict between authority and freedom of thought.
