About the Show/Event

Life of Galileo
Information for Life of Galileo at The Young Vic, Inner London (Play). Galileo Galilei: father, hero, heretic. When a chance discovery leads to evidence of a seismic shift in scientific thinking, Galileo sparks a dangerous dispute with authority. To challenge the idea that the earth is the centre of the universe is to challenge the all-powerful Roman Catholic Church. Brecht's dramatisation of the battle between belief and reason considers whether proof matters when it inspires dissent.
Performers Brendan Cowell.
Author Bertolt Brecht. Producer Young Vic. Director Joe Wright. Lighting Jon Clark. Sound Tom Gibbons. Design Lizzie Clachan.
