"Strepsiades lives in Greece. He has debt. A lot of debt. And that's because his son, Phiddy, has a penchant for betting and isn't so keen on working. At a loss, Streps has an idea: Phiddy can go to Socrates' Academy and learn how to talk himself out of trouble! Job done! What could possibly go wrong? Socrates and his Clouds is a serio-comic drama about the fragility of morality, the hazards of education and the burdens of being a teacher."
