The Eno River Players present Phaedo, an orginal play by Leo Egger, and a playful and poignant take on the trial and death of the Greek philosopher Socrates. Based directly on Platos Phaedo, Apology, and seven other dialouges, this play breathes life into these foundational Western texts. A cast of four 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, Platos words take on an urgency lost in the classroom; Socrates sacrifice becomes tragedy, not mere abstraction. This show is a celebration of the intellectual life.
