“Unique edutainment experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Beautiful venue, multitalented actor, extremelly pertinent text and a stimulating discussion. It made my teenage sister want to study Socrates and gave a new perspective to our understanding of what is going on in Greece. Definitely the best edutainment experience available in English in Athens!

“Worth seeing anywhere in the world but best seeing it where it all happened”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We visited Athens last week. My wife and I were very charmed from what we saw. Fantastic setting , in the centre of the old town, near the acropolis. A truly cultural experience compete with the debate that took part after the performance between the brilliant "Socrates " and the audience . For me this is a " must see" event if you are visiting Greece.

“An excellent experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Watching the famous "apology" under the Parthenon, played by an excellent actor was one of the best nights i had lately. I also loved the dialogue that followed after the play, as we freely expressed and discussed our opinions about things that matter. I wouldn't forget to mention that the staff was excellent and very kind to us making a very pleasant environment.

Socrates Now is a fascinating and entertaining play that conveys a lot to the audience and highlights another aspect of the historical city of Athens. A must see.
