WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

David Edgar's adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's electrifying masterpiece spies through Galileo's telescope to observe his thrilling inventions, radical discoveries, and sometimes tempestuous personal life. His passion to unearth truth through science clashes with the laws of the Italian Government and the religious views of the Vatican. Galileo pursues his research no matter what the cost to his family, while his apprentice, Andrea Sarti, loses faith in his mentor. Finally, Galileo must choose between his life and proclaiming the truth of his scientific findings.
