Socrates Smith's 'An Evening with Borges' is a work in production for the Melbourne Fringe 2023.
Socrates hosts an event during which the audience expects to meet 'the greatest author never to win the Nobel Prize'. Instead, Socrates spends most of the time talking about himself, but it's the same thing really, since his life appears to have been written by Borges anyway. Will the audience finally meet the master? Will Socrates meet his?
The work will feature a specially constructed stage which frames, confuses, and finally entraps Socrates.
