Why Hemlock? Hemlock, or Conium maculatum, is a poisonous plant native to Europe, the Mediterranean, and Africa. Referenced in ancient Greek literature, Socrates, on trialfor corrupting the youth and impiety, was sentenced to death by drinking a hemlock based mixture. Theatre gives us an opportunity to pose philosophical questions and explore the human condition through art. Hemlock is a reminder that not all who set out in search for answers were fortunate enough to do so without facing punishment or prosecution.
