Premiere Mai 2018


In 1941, fleeing the Nazis, Marxist playwright Bertolt Brecht arrived in America where he met English actor and Hollywood star Charles Laughton. Attracted to each other like celestial objects they embarked on translating and adapting Brecht’s play Life of Galileo for its American premiere, with Laughton playing the lead, while history, in the form of the the atomic bomb and the House Un-American Activities Committee, exerted its pull.
