The Trials of Galileo
The first flowerings of scientific truth crushed by the bully church.
“The Universe is a divine miracle Galileo, not a clockwork toy! ’Proof' denies faith, and without faith we are nothing." This reprimand of Pope Urban contained Galileo's tragedy – a mistaken belief that all he had to do was show his reasoning and evidence and the church would fall in behind him.
After premiering in Indianapolis in 2008 this one-man rollercoaster stars Tim Hardy (professor at RADA, veteran of The Royal Shakespeare Company, and star of major European tours) and is written by Emmy Award winner Nic Young.
