An out of-this-world production of Brecht’s masterpiece on a stunning wrap-around set, directed by BAFTA winner Joe Wright.
Galileo by Brecht is based on the real life of the seventeenth century astronomer and physicist Galileo Galilei. The play is in fourteen scenes which is a break from the conventional pattern of dividing the play into acts and scenes.
The 17th century debate between scientific innovation and religious belief inspired Bertolt Brecht's richest play. Life of Galileo, premiered in its English Language version in 1947 and has since been adapted for big screen and staged in various revivals all around the world.
