Galileo's heretical discoveries about the solar system bring him to the attention of the Inquisition.

He is scared into publicly abjuring his theories but, despite his self-contempt, goes on working in private, eventually helping to smuggle his writings out of the country.As an examination of the problems that face not only the scientist but also the whole spirit of free inquiry when brought into conflict with the requirements of government or official ideology.

"If one masterwork seems more timely than ever, it is Life of Galileo . I can.t think of a more prescient play for our times." The Guardian, March 2017
