Diary of a Madman

ByHoward Colyer

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Gogol's short story, Diary of a Madman, adapted for the stage. "This is a play about an individual’s descent into madness, brought to life by a brilliant trio of actor David Bromley, 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. Rather than being ordinary, he is ‘extraordinary’, a term peppering Howard Colyer’s script. Through Poprishchin, Gogol portrays his contempt for government and bureaucracy, and allows this lowly civil servant to become a leader…at least in his own mind." Emma Slater, London Theatre, reviewing the production at the Jack Studio.
