About this show

In a battle between his scientific principals and struggles with the Catholic Church, The Life of Galileo follows the legendary astronomer and physicist Galileo as he worked to prove the Copernican theory that the sun, not the earth, is the center of the universe. Galileo's findings and claims challenged the Catholic Church's omnipotent religious rule. Accused of heresy and brought to trial, Galileo forcefully recanted his findings and was confined to house arrest for the rest of his life, forbidden to continue to write further about a moving earth or a stationary sun. The adaptation, using Mark Ravenhill's translation, also showcases a new political system coming into power and the extreme intellectual conflict experienced by technology and information.
