What’s it like when it becomes a crime to say ‘I Don’t Know’?

The Big Olive. Athens. Before B.C. existed. The populists are on the rise and they’re looking for a scapegoat.

Sound familiar? Any old goat will do. Enter Socrates. He opens his mouth and soon he’s on trial for his life.

The Man Who Argued Himself To Death, a blisteringly funny satirical comedy by Colin Swash (The QueenHave I Got News For You).

Socrates stands in front of the camera in an orange prison overall. He holds a chalkboard in his hands which has the title of the show on it: The Man Who Argued Himself To Death.
