Take a seat in the court of ancient Athens as Socrates goes on trial for his life. Hear the philosopher face his accusers with his trademark wit, cutting logic, and the courage of his ideals. Consider his arguments on virtue, justice, politics, civic duty, love of life and hope in death, and draw your own judgement. Enjoy the post-performance opportunity to discuss with the actor the ramifications of your verdict.
Think. Question. Change.
The international theatrical production based on Plato’s “Apology” returns to the beautiful courtyard of the Athens University Museum building, beneath the Acropolis, a few steps from where the philosopher was sentenced to death 2400 years ago.
