Renowned stage and screen actor Tim Hardy returns to London from this year’s Edinburgh Fringe with his critically acclaimed OffFest nominated solo show, The Trials of Galileo. Written and directed by Emmy Award winning filmmaker Nic Young, it tells the gripping story of Galileo’s heresy trial in 1634.

'Proof' denies faith, and without faith we are nothing. The universe is a divine miracle, Galileo, not a clockwork toy; In this reprimand by Pope Urban in 1624 lies Galileo's tragedy – he never understood his differences with the Church were not about reason, logic and scientific fact. They were about politics. When he finally came to realise this, it was too late.
