Phaedo archiveA playful and poignant take on the trial and death of the Greek philosopher Socrates. Based directly on Plato's Phaedo and Apology, this play breathes life into these foundational Western texts. The cast reimagines and relives Socrates' final hours in an Athenian prison cell as he philosophizes on the nature of forms and vividly describes the afterlife that awaits him. Realized on stage, Plato's words take on an urgency lost in the classroom; Socrates' sacrifice becomes tragedy, not mere abstraction, a celebration of the intellectual life.
