"Socrates Now," a solo performance by actor, writer, producer, Yannis Simonides, of the Greek Theatre of New York, captures the essence of Socratic ethics in an accessible and engaging manner. The play features a delightful and humorous dramatization of the famous philosopher's defense and his rebuttals to a guilty verdict and sentence to death. Yannis Simonides channels the eccentric yet magnetic personality of Socrates and offers a profoundly social, political, but above all human work, which captivates the audience with the humor, immediacy and simplicity of its theatrical rendition. Enjoy the post-performance opportunity to discuss with the actor the ramifications of your verdict.
