    Bertolt Brecht (1898?1956) was one of the most influential playwrights of the twentieth century. Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, he left Germany in 1933 when Hitler came to power. Returning to Germany after the war, he founded the Berliner Ensemble and continued to work on plays and films. Richard Foreman is the MacArthur Prize?winning author, director, and designer of more than fifty original plays, and the founder of the Ontological?Hysteric Theater.
    Galileo Ranks alongside Mother Courage and Mr. Puntila as one of Brecht?s most intensely alive, human, and complex characters. In Life of Galileo, the great Renaissance scientist is in a brutal struggle for freedom from authoritarian dogma. Unable to satisfy his appetite for scientific investigation, he comes into conflict with the Inquisition and must publicly renounce his theories, though in private he goes on working on his revolutionary ideas.
