An English-speaking performance for probably the most famous trial in history will be present from 24 June until 7 July at the open air yard of the University of Athens museum.
The Apology of Socrates, comes to life under the Acropolis in English. With immediacy and humor, Plato's timeless classic offers a unique multilayered cultural experience and political challenge to foreign visitors of Athens, right next to the original site of Socrate's historic trial.
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, corruption, civic duty, love of life and hope in death, and draw your own judgment. Enjoy the post-performance opportunity to discuss with the actor the ramifications of your verdict.
Think. Question. Change.
