Show Information

Following last year’s successful visit, Diary of a Madman returns to the Sherman. 1830s Russia. Poprishchin - a low ranking civil servant for the Government - is in his 40s and struggling to make his mark on life. One day he makes an amazing discovery. Could he really be the next King of Spain?

Driven insane by government bureaucracy and hierarchy, Gogol’s dark comedy exposes one man’s reality spiralling deeper into a surreal fantasy world. Considered by many to be Gogol’s best work, Diary of a Madman is a timeless piece that explores the human condition when it comes face to face with its own mortality.

Ages 14+

"Diary of a Madman largely maintains a dark and gripping mood that presents mental illness in a humorous yet sympathetic light."
