In Falling Bodies, Nine Circles Chamber Theatre imagines  a meeting between the 16th century Italian scientist-poet Galileo Galilei and the 20th century Italian poet-scientist Primo Levi.  Dropping balls from the Tower of Pisa, watching soccer on a TV in a bar, listening to a concert in a village café, the two ponder their own searches for truth during lives marked by inquisition and despair, the price one pays for survival, and the restorative power of celery.
