What some culture? Come and see "The Life of Galileo" (play) at Central SQ. Theater.

Let's see... You went out last night and had a few more pints than you wished you had and in a usual fashion, you went out for brunch with your mates hung over. All of a sudden, you think to yourself, "All this drinking... my liver might explode".

Well, if that's what you are going through during your average weekend then may I suggest that you catch some culture at Central Square Theater? Right now, "The Life of Galileo" is in production through May 17th, 2009. The play is about the latter period of the life of Galileo Galilei, the great Italian Baroque natural philosopher, who was persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church for the promulgation of his scientific discoveries. The play embraces such themes as the conflict between dogmatism and scientific evidence, as well as interrogating the values of constancy in the face of oppression (from wikipedia). The play is translated by a brilliant british playwright, David Hare (He also did screen plays for The Hours, and The reader).

So, take a break from your usual 12oz curls and get your mind some much needed stimulation!
