WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

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.
