Written by the German playwright Bertold Brecht while in exile during WWII, this play is about Galileo Galilei, the revolutionary physicist whose discoveries approximately 400 years ago changed the world.

The play examines the irresistible drive of Galileo’s curiosity and illuminates the power of inquiry, as well as the revolutionary nature of truth when it challenges power. The play exposes the mechanics of the religious and political power structure, the methods of suppressing dangerous ideas, resonating with today.

The cast includes Anthony Zuniga, Sydney Windham, Claudia Dalhman, Kristian Michaels, K’nique Eichelber, Sallie Watson, Gabriel Bernhard, Sarah Hajkowski, Lisa Arrona and Emma Harris.

Production support includes Amber Blanton and Claire Wylie as rehearsal stage managers, coordinator of theatre Andrea Boccanfuso as the scenic and lighting designer, adjunct professor of theatre Ida Bostian as costume designer, Talley Sugg as assistant costume designer, Gavin Martin as sound designer, Mabry Taylor as hair and makeup designer, Claire Wylie as props master, and Chris Strassner as the Brevard College Theatre technical director.
