APOLOGY

 

 

Socrates, proclaimed by the oracle at Delphi to be the wisest man in Athens, has been brought to trial for “corrupting the youth of the city and professing disbelief in the ancestral gods”; His accusers call for his death. Will Socrates’ wisdom be enough to defend himself and convince the jury of his innocence? Or will his tireless search for truth endanger his life and continue to anger the proud men of Athens? In this crisp eighty minute adaptation of Plato’s dialogue, the audience becomes the jury and experiences the theatrics of the Socratic method as Socrates defends his life. Experience CourtTV brought to life, starring the father of modern philosophy and the most fascinating person ever to ponder the meaning of life in this thought-provoking production that proves the unexamined life is not worth living.
