“The Clouds” by Aristophanes

A campus performance of Aristophanes’ The Clouds during 2016 at Bard College in Berlin, staged by alumna Maria Khan and a group of students. The play is Aristophanes’ lampooning Socrates and ancient Athens’ intellectual class. A play Thomas Sowell would certainly appreciate. It starts at 6:20.
