 When Nietzsche Went Mad and other stories

The Philosophy Foundation and Conway Hall Ethical Society presents When Nietzsche Went Mad and other stories SOLD OUT After last years public event at Spitalfields Market – where we brought philosophy to the shoppers…even if they didn’t know they wanted it – we have teamed up with Conway Hall for an evening of stories a play reading and philosophical enquiries to celebrate World Philosophy Day this year. The theme for the evening – as with both our events this year – is knowledge and education. Stories will consider what knowledge is worth knowing how we gain knowledge and whether there is an ‘everything’ to know. Our storytellers have been picked from the bravest of our specialist Philosophy teachers who have cut their teeth telling stories to teenagers pre-schoolers business people and pub goers. Who is the lady in the picture? Elizabeth Foster- Nietzsche Fredrich’s sister who turned his philosophical writings into propaganda that eventually supported Nazi ideology. Our specialist philosophy teacher professional playwright and poet Andy Day has written a play about her and her ‘will to power’. Brilliant moving and funny as part of the event scenes from the play will be read by actors including the wonderful Kate Terence and Emma Swinn (or Emma Worley as most of you know her). The full cast will be announced on our Facebook Events Page over the coming weeks so to stay updated ‘like us’ on our Facebook Page. Newly confirmed: Director James Albrecht of the St James Theatre and Oliver Senton star of Mamma Mia in the West End last year and a founding member of Showstopper will join the cast of The Sister.
