About this show

David Edgar, author of the Tony- and Olivier winning The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, has written a brilliant new translation of Brecht's masterpiece The Life of Galileo -- an examination about reason, religion and power that The Daily Telegraph calls "crystal clear, breathing vitality into the question of science's relation to ethics... the issues are more relevant than ever." Are there limits to the freedom of inquiry? Galileo strives to bring reason to a world in which power is concealed as faith. In an age of fundamentalism, cloning, and climate change, his epic struggle continues to resonate across the centuries.
