"Ever since I can remember I have always been different… If I take the pill that they have placed in my hand, who will I become?”
At the age of 23, Paul walks into a psychiatrist’s office believing he is either a God, or a King. He leaves with a diagnosis of Bipolar Manic Depression, and facing a life-changing decision: Take the pill and live, or don’t take the pill and die.
23 years later; Gods & Kings draws on Paul’s real-life experience to produce an emotionally honest, and darkly funny, account of what it is to live a life ruled by mental illness.
There will be a post show panel discussion following the performance.
