Photo Flash: In Rehearsals for Young Vic's LIFE OF GALILEO

By: Apr. 24, 2017

Galileo Galilei: father, hero, heretic. When a chance discovery leads to evidence of a seismic shift in scientific thinking, Galileo sparks a dangerous dispute with authority. To challenge the idea that the earth is the centre of the universe is to challenge the all-powerful Roman Catholic Church.

Take a look at photos of the cast in rehearsals below!

Brecht's dramatisation of the battle between belief and reason considers whether proof matters when it inspires dissent. Joe Wright catapults Life of Galileo into the Young Vic's Main House auditorium as you've never seen it before with design by Lizzie Clachan and projections by 59 Productions. The full cast is: Ayesha Antoine, Jason Barnett, Brendan Cowell, Billy Howle, Paul Hunter, Joshua James, Bettrys Jones, Alex Murdoch, Brian Pettifer, Anjana Vasan and Sarah Wright.
