Chicago’s Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents “Galileo’s Daughter” by Jessica Dickey at Theater Wit. The production also features the directorial debut of Remy Bumppo’s new Artistic Director Marti Lyons.
The synopsis of the play is as follows.
Rattled by a personal crisis, a playwright flees to Florence to study the letters between Galileo Galilei and his eldest daughter, Maria Celeste.
Maria Celeste, caught up in the threats against her father, must abandon her work and join a convent.
Alternating between past and present timelines, “Galileo’s Daughter” is a personal examination of faith, forgiveness and the cost of heeding one’s truth.
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company stages the world premiere of “Galileo’s Daughter,” Apr. 5–May 14, 2023.
