More information about Socrates

This powerful new play by actor, director, and writer Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Holes) is an intellectual thrill ride about Socrates (played by Michael Stuhlbarg) and the philosopher’s growing prominence in democratic Athens through the military and social upheavals that led to one of the most infamous executions in Western history.

Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, Junk) directs SOCRATES, a timely and timeless new work that serves as a passionate tribute to the man who continues to inspire us to question authority and defend freedom of belief.
