Life of Galileo
"Doubting makes me happy. Why?"
In 1610, at the peak of the Age of Discovery and the Inquisition, a man raised a telescope towards the heavens and made the explosive claim that the earth was not in fact the center of the universe. Centuries later, Bertolt Brecht expressed his own explosive opposition to Fascism by re-imagining the story of Galileo's conflict between reason and faith. Today, in an new era of fundamentalism and rapid scientific innovation, the artists of Strawberry Theatre Workshop (recent winners of the Stranger's Genius Award for 2007 and producers of Accidental Death of an Anarchist and An Enemy of the People on Capitol Hill) join the students, faculty, and staff of Seattle University to realize Brecht's epic fascinating play of social responsibility and the power of ideas.
