Theater of the Mind
In a world where the bad guys seem to be having all of the fun, it’s not uncommon to ask “Why be good?” Characters attempt to answer this and other philosophical questions while navigating through moral dilemmas in the theatrical production “Republic,” by the Hoi Polloi Theater Company. Under the direction on Alec Duff, actors Jess Barbagallo, Lori Parquet and Jason Quarles, take on the “blueprint for a good life,” as laid out in Plato’s Republic.
Where: JACK, 505 1/2 Waverly Place, Clinton Hill
