THE LIFE OF GALILEO by Bertolt Brecht, adapted by David Edgar, directed by Jerome Davis.

Performed outdoors at Dorothea Dix Park, 1030 Richardson Dr. Raleigh, NC 27603

Tickets available for live performances and on-demand recording.


by Harold Pinter

November 30 – December 17, 2023

The play deals with two couples, one with children, one without and the daughter who may or may not be there.  It was Pinter’s last substantial play and came fifteen years after his previous full length play, near the end of his career.  It originally starred Ian Holm (The Lord of The Rings).  The Guardian has called Moonlight Pinter’s “quintessential play”.  It deals with themes of infidelity, grief, guilt and a preoccupation with power.

Harold Pinter is one of five playwrights to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Pinter was a radical political activist who often ran afoul of powerful people and countries because of his unabashed public rhetoric.
