TUIDA

Late antiqe and medieval fortress “TUIDA”

The last night of Socrates

On August 30, 2022 from 8:00 p.m. on the stage of the Ancient Tuida Fortress, Stefan Tsanev's play will be performed - "The Last Night of Socrates", which was one of the most popular theater in the 80s of the 20th century on the Bulgarian stage. A comedy that will make you laugh heartily, but also answer important and eternally relevant questions about freedom, death, choice, the secret tools of power and who is stronger - the executioner or his victim....
Socrates was sentenced to death by the Athenian democracy for "corrupting the youth" and being "dangerous to the state". On his last night, he waits for third roosters to crow, when he will be poisoned. The sentence must be carried out by the guard - an executioner, who was also sentenced to death for organizing a conspiracy to liberate Ionia from the hegemony of Athens.
In the play, the philosophical, the political, the public and the personal are attracted and repelled on stage. Questions are raised about what power actually is, how it degenerates, whether truth is consistent with power, what are the relations between the individual and society. A serious play put on in a comic way.
