DEMOCRACY opens in Athens in 490 BC, on the eve of the Battle of Marathon. The hero of the story, Leander, is trying to rouse his comrades for the morrow’s battle against a far mightier enemy. Leander begins to recount his own life story, bearing direct witness to the evils of the old tyrannical regimes, and to the birth of a new political system. The tale that emerges is one of daring, danger, and big ideas, of the death of the gods and the tortuous birth of democracy. We see that democracy originated through a combination of chance and historical contingency–but also through the cunning, courage, and wilful action of a group of remarkably talented and driven individuals.

If you are unable to attend the event but would like to buy a copy of DEMOCRACY you can purchase one online or in your local bookshop .
