Description

The last days of the the founding father of philosophy, Socrates. This physical theatre adaptation of the historical events not only shines a light on the origins of Western thought, but inventively takes the concepts into the 21st century. Bringing forth issues surrounding freedom of speech and scapegoating, with much of the emphasis on the power of storytelling and the mythological tales that have shaped Western culture. It is a story that is a source of inspiration for a creative mind and ultimately casts doubt upon our assumptions.

Simply brilliant!
Peter Barrett's command of language, history and theatrical narrative breathe shimmering life into this pivotal moment in the history of democracy.
He illuminates the transcendent power of Loyalty - to our values to our beliefs and to our fellow citizens.
It is inspiring for these troubled times when our modern democracies are stretched and buffeted by 'events'. Our faith in democracy, reason and acerbic argument is nourished and refreshed by the art, eloquence and deeply felt conviction of Peter Barrett and his Fundamentals Theatre Company.
Simply brilliant!
