Galileo live, as presented by Island Oak
Senior students at Island Oak High School are presenting a play about personal integrity, wonder, freedom, and oppression today.
Set in 17th century Italy and written in pre-war Germany, themes from A Life of Galileo are just as relevant today, according to the group putting on the play.
“It prescribes doubt for our most comfortable assumptions, and encourages our best—and most difficult—actions. Every senior student at our small school has grappled with the scientific, philosophical, and ethical arguments of this powerful play,” said drama teacher, Elliot Fox Povey.
Two shows are scheduled for May 16, 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Quw’utsun’ Cultural Centre theatre.
Tickets at the door, by donation. There will be two short intermissions and refreshments available.
