Life of Galileo

Date: 22 Jun 2019

Has Galileo betrayed science and the future?

Or has he just found a more subtle way of speaking truth to power?

Brecht’s classic play of individual liberty and political suppression hits the Belvoir stage with Colin Friels as the wily, pugnacious scientist who comes to the conclusion that the entire system is based on lies.

Eamon Flack directs. Ayeesha Ash, Peter Carroll, Miranda Parker, Damien Ryan, Damien Strouthos, Vaishnavi Suryaprakash, Sonia Todd and Rajan Velu feature.
