Galileo was initially celebrated as a great man of the Renaissance – until the church condemned his teachings, fearing that he would begin to question the order of the social system, too. Brecht’s powerful play questions the scientist’s responsibilities in the face of an oppressive government. Orcas Center’s production is directed by Robert Hall and performed by a local star-studded cast.
The Life of Galileo (Hare, trans.) is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
