This play is a modern retelling of Galileo’s resistance and ultimate recantation to the Inquisition over his support of the Copernican theory of the earth’s rotation. Notions of science, faith, demons, madness and self-sacrifice are raised and overturned. As Cardinals Borgia and Zacchia negotiate with Galileo over his recantation, we are also afforded a look at the process of reconciling new science with the power structure, a struggle that continues even today.  Join us on opening night, February 15 for Galileo Galilei’s 454th birthday!  Saturday performance includes an audience TalkBack with the actors and director with a light reception to follow.  Catering by Pern’s Restaurant.
