Archimedes

The second of three plays by John Wain and Laszlo Solymar about mathematicians and philosophers whose ideas brought about their downfall. Archimedes was thought by some to be a madman, jumping out of his bath and running stark naked through the streets shouting "Eureka!". But his inventions were capable of being turned into the most terrifying weapons.
