The main themes of this historical drama are the intense rivalry of two powerful Cardinals for the Papacy, and their compelling need to control the politically toxic Galileo, a person they otherwise appreciate and admire. Galileo is subtly siding with both Cardinals, but the best he can get for himself is permanent house arrest, a virtual burial alive. The play is relevant in our world, where widespread anti-science beliefs cause societal conflict, regressive governmental actions are common, and freedom of expression is not assured.

Leo-Leo Galileo is presented by Playwrights Ink of Madison, in cooperation with the UW-Madison Retirement Association, the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters, and the Wisconsin Initiative for Science Literacy.
