And The Sun Stood Still

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: LA Theatre Works

Date: June 2015

Duration: 1 hours 50 minutes

Summary:

Dava Sobel’s thoughtful play brings to life the story of Nicolaus Copernicus, the Renaissance astronomer and mathematician who proposed the heliocentric model of the universe in which the Sun stands at the center. Plagued by self-doubt and threatened by religious censure, Copernicus resisted the publication of his work until just before his death in 1543. And the Sun Stood Still follows Copernicus in those final years as he works to complete his research with the help of Georg Rheticus, a young disciple from Wittenberg, Germany.

Includes a conversation with playwright Dava Sobel, author of A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionized the Cosmos.

An L.A. Theatre Works full cast recording, featuring Robert Foxworth, John Vickery, Kate Steele, Michael Kirby, and Gregory Harrison. Directed by Rosalind Ayres.

And The Sun Stood Still is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Major funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, to enhance public understanding of science and technology in the modern world.
