In this ancient Greek comedy, Strepsiades has a problem: his good-for-nothing son Pheidippides is gambling away his fortune on horses. Strepsiades wants to send his son to the Thinkery, an expensive school of sophisticated rhetoric, so that Pheidippides can talk his way out of Strepsiades' debts. At the Thinkery Pheidippides meets Socrates, a fast-talking sleaze ball "philosopher" who teaches his students how to con their way out of trouble. There is a famous story from antiquity that Socrates cheerfully rose from his seat in the theatre during a performance of The Clouds when foreigners in the audience began to whisper, "Who is Socrates?" Plato would later complain bitterly that this play's mocking portrayal of Socrates contributed to his downfall
