Sunday, October 1, 10:50 am — Adult Forum: Luther College Theatre Department’s The Life of Galileo — Congregation member and Luther Assistant Professor of Theatre, Bobby Vrtis, will talk about Bertolt Brecht’s play, The Life of Galileo, to be performed October 5-7.  Brecht was drawn to the subject of Galileo’s life because of his interest in the tension between a desire to speak (and discover) the truth and the need to survive in difficult times. Vrtis also plans to talk about Brecht’s theories of what theatre should do and how that is shaping the Luther College production.
