Lady Philosophy on Trial
In 399 B.C., Socrates was put on trial, accused of impiety and corrupting the young, and found guilty. In this live radio-play adaptation, Lady Philosophy is on trial for idleness and corrupting young minds. Luminaries in the history of Western thought – from William Shakespeare to Queen Christina of Sweden – are called as witnesses to testify in an all-female cast. Does philosophy have any relevance in a technologically advanced society? Audience members will serve as jurors in judgment.
