Hit one–man show comes to ISLAND’s intimate Studio Theatre hot on the heels of its international success.
Experience the sarcasm, humour and wit of this science versus theology drama which centres on great astronomer Galileo’s trial for heresy after he showed that the earth revolves around the sun.
Galileo’s tragedy is that he never understood that his differences with the church were not about reason, logic, and scientific fact. He understood the science better than any man alive, but never grasped the politics. Until it was too late.
‘Passionate, intelligent, hilarious, chilling…in Tim Hardy’s phenomenal performance, the knife–fight between science and religion does not take place between men, but INSIDE one.’ Dr Gary Taylor, Florida State University
