19 Feb-5 March 2005. Galileo's discoveries were so radical they were seen as a direct challenge to the religious and scientific beliefs of his time and changed the Christian worlds perception of the universe. The Life of Galileo is a compelling play that tells the tale of the famous Italian scientist's career and struggles with the establishment and the Church in particular. Taking place during the extremities of the Inquisition in seventeenth century Italy, Brechts study of Galileos genius, humanity and courage also looks at how the truth is sometimes concealed or manipulated for political ends. The play is considered a masterpiece and is frequently aired during times of political disquiet. This production by Rough Magic, a leading Irish theatre company, based on a translation by Howard Brenton of Brechts classic, uses contemporary global politics as the backdrop. Tickets cost between 14 and 20.
