Αfter a successful tour all over the world, with 350 performances in 17 countries, Plato’s timeless classic The Apology of Socrates will come to life with “Socrates Now” in Stockholm, Sweden, as part of the cultural program of the Grekland Panorama tourism fair.
Five performances, starring Emmy Award winner Yannis Simonides, will be given during 13-17 February 2015 in Stockholm. The performances will be presented in English with Swedish subtitles.
Socrates Now is a 75-minute solo performance that captures the essence of Socratic ethics in an accessible and engaging manner. The play features a delightful and quite humorous dramatization of the famous philosopher’s defense and his rebuttals to a guilty verdict and sentence to death.
The Swedish audience will hear the philosopher face his accusers with his trademark wit, cutting logic, and the courage of his ideals.
