The production is interesting because of its form, merging antiquity with modernity. Having made a projection of the ancient history of the dispute of truth and untruth as toid by Socrates and about the peripetias of modern parliament, the show at times simply scares with its associations to the present. The laconic evenness of the performance reminds us of a poster in which the simplicity of ideas and beauty of the form prevails, while the shrill sound of caution excites emotions with the confirmation of the invariance of human nature
