HVAC Improvements

Rattled by a personal crisis, a playwright flees to Florence to study the letters between Galileo Galilei and his eldest daughter, Maria Celeste. Caught up in the threats against her father, Maria Celeste must abandon her work and join a convent. Alternating between timelines, Jessica Dickey’s captivating world premiere is a personal examination of faith, forgiveness and the cost of heeding one’s truth.
