AND THE SUN STOOD STILL

This is the story of Nicolaus Copernicus -- the first in the western world to prove that the sun stands at the center of the universe. It put him in a challenging position, as you hear, as an officer in the Roman Catholic dioceses, which held a geocentric world view. In his later years Copernicus was plagued by self-doubt and threatened by religious censure. He resisted publication of his work until just before his death in 1543. The play by Dava Sobel follows Copernicus in his final years as he works to complete his research with the help os Rheticus, a young mathematician.

The production is produced by LA Theatreworks.
