THE TRIALS OF GALILEO by Nic Young (Emmy Award-winner)
Starring Tim Hardy (RSC/RADA)
“The Universe is a divine miracle Galileo, not a clockwork toy! ‘Proof’ denies faith, and without faith we are nothing.”
In this reprimand by Pope Urban is contained Galileo’s tragedy – a mistaken belief that if he supplied the church with proof, he would enlighten the world while escaping persecution.
He understood the science better than any man alive, but never grasped the politics. Until it wastoo late. The Trials of Galileo focuses on the events surrounding Galileo’s heresy trial in 1633.
After a successful tour of the US, a sold-out run at the Brighton Fringe Festival and Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, RSC actor Tim Hardy follows a highly successful transfer to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and multiple four-star reviews by bringing his solo show The Trials of Galileo to a more extensive audience as part of an Icarus tour.
