BAFTA Award-winning film director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) returns to the Young Vic after his celebrated production of A Season in the Congo, with Brendan Cowell in the title role following his acclaimed performance in Yerma.
Galileo makes an explosive discovery about the universe with his new invention – the telescope. Brecht’s masterpiece about science, power and belief is a play for our times.
The production will be performed in-the-round on a stunning set designed by Lizzie Clachan (Yerma, A Season in the Congo) and with projections by 59 Productions (Feast, War Horse).
Life of Galileo runs at the Young Vic from 6 May – 1 July. Tickets are between £10-£38. Find out more and book tickets here.
