More > director Scott Le Crass, and author Howard Colyer. But what makes the play interesting is that Gogol’s protagonist defies the literary mould: he has a condition usually reserved for tormented kings and ladies imprisoned in the attic.

Emma Slater, London Theatre, reviewing the production at the Jack Studio.< Less
