What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/The Trials of Galileo

"'Proof' denies faith, and without faith we are nothing. The universe is a divine miracle, Galileo, not a clockwork toy." Pope Urban (1624)

 

In this reprimand by Pope Urban is Galileo's tragedy, a mistaken belief that if he supplied the church with proof that the planets revolve around the sun, he would enlighten the world while escaping persecution. He was wrong.

 

Galileo never understood his differences with the Church were not about reason, logic, and scientific fact. They were about politics. When he finally came to realise this, on trial for heresy, it was too late.

 

A regular with the RSC, performer Tim Hardy has previously toured The Trials of Galileo throughout the UK, America, Europe and had a sold out critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
