Based on the account of Socrates trial by Plato this play celebrates the wit which Socrates employed during his final public appearance. Rather than offer a defence he chose instead to try to prove that the charges against him were ridiculous. A tactic which very nearly worked but eventually led to his execution. The nature of the play means that it works equally with the cast played by women or as a piece of youth theatre. Many of Socrates passages may also be used as standalone monologues. There is no set required and the play works very well in the round.
