Trials of Galileo at Perth Concert Hall – 10th & 11th March 2016

March 1, 2016 by Perthshire Creates

Perth Concert Hall are delighted to present RSC actor Tim Hardy in his highly acclaimed production The Trials of Galileo, written by Emmy Award-winner Nic Young, in Perth Concert Hall’s Norie-Miller Studio on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 March.

Anyone with an interest in science and history will appreciate this story based on the events surrounding Galileo’s trial for heresy in 1633, in a time where the church felt threatened by new discoveries that went against their teaching. Called upon to deny his assertion that the Earth revolved around the Sun, Galileo’s failure to grasp the politics at play ultimately led to his downfall.

Witty, chilling and passionate, this is a perfect study of the professional, personal and emotional turmoil anyone subject to an oppressive regime can face.
