About This Show

Straight from London’s National Theatre to L.A. Theatre Works, Stacy Keach stars in Bertolt Brecht’s The Life of Galileo, adapted by David Hare. Unrelenting in his search for “simple truth,” Galileo Galilei shatters beliefs held sacred for two thousand years. But, under threat of torture by the Holy Inquisition, his scientific and personal integrity are put to the test as he argues for his very life in a passionate debate over science, politics, religion and ethics that resonates to this day.

London’s Guardian calls it “a restless, endlessly evolving masterpiece. A play for today.”

Featuring Joanna Whalley, Roy Dotrice, Simon Templeman.
