The Amharic adaption of "Shoeless in Athens", (Bado Egir), a 1966 play composed by American dramatist Maxwell Anderson that accounts the newest very long periods of the savant Socrates, his preliminary and last times before his willful passing was arranged in Athens' Odeon of Herodes Atticus on Mon, 1 october. The twenty man cast from the Ethiopian Country wide Theater, who proceeded to go there with the help of Greek Embassy in Addis Ababa, offered the execution before 4,000 Greek and Ethiopian sets of onlookers to a fantastic compliment.
Bado Egir, in light of Plato's three works, Crito and the Apology and Phaedo of Socrates, was meant Amharic by Aschalew Fekede and coordinated with considerable aptitude by Rahel Teshome, and Endale Berhanu, two youthful chiefs of the Country wide Theater. The manufacturers spent no under 2 yrs on the era. The play was modified by the experienced performing artist, professional Debebe Eshetu, who similarly packed the role of Socrates. (Regardless, for the Athens execution he was supplanted by Henok Zerabruk due to medical problem.) Associated music created by Berhanu Tesfaye added evidently to creation. Meseret Hiwot assumed the work of Socrates' spouse.
