Good Heavens! follows the partnership and rivalry between astronomers Johannes Kepler and Tycho Brahe at the dawn of the 17th century. Kepler is a brilliant theorist determined to discover divine order in the universe, while Tycho is a master observer set on proving his incorrect model of the solar system. Hypatia of Alexandria and Guillaume le Gentil, two astronomers form other periods in history, serve as the narrators of the story and play the characters around Kepler and Tycho. Here, we present two scenes from the original full-length play.
