"The New Galileos" - A Play by Amy Berryman
- Public Event
Three female climatologists find themselves detained by government bureaucrats. The scientists are given an option to disavow their research in exchange for millions of dollars...or to disappear. In an Orwellian nightmare, they discover just how much they can trust each other as they consider the price of their recantation.
The play weaves between their current crisis and their pasts, leading them to an interrogation room. What will be the price of their freedom?
The New Galileos frightens with a chilling forecast of future science.
