Synopsis:
Bertolt Brecht's play Galileo is a unique look at the nature of creation. It examines the responsibilities of both the creator and the authorities contrasting that with one man's battle against conventional wisdom. Galileo Galilei was a brilliant Italian mathematician and scientist born in Pisa in the 16th century, who made important scientific contributions to many disciplines. Brecht concentrates on the period of Galileo's life when his pronouncements about the solar system fell foul of ecclesiastical authorities.
