The Life of Galileo

By Bertolt Brecht (in a new version by Howard Brenton)


Galileo’s radical discoveries challenged the religious and scientific certainties of his time and changed our perception of the universe. Set in Italy at the height of the Inquisition, Brecht’s play is a study of his genius, humanity and courage and examines how truth can be suppressed and manipulated for political reasons.
