1830s Russia. Poprishchin is in his forties, a low-ranking civil servant for the Government, struggling to make his mark on life, but one day he makes an amazing discovery. Could he really be the next King of Spain? Driven insane by government bureaucracy and hierarchy, this one-man-show adapted from Gogol’s dark comedy exposes one man’s reality spiralling ever deeper into a surreal fantasy world. Directed by Sinéad Rushe and presented by Living Pictures.
