“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.   

British Sign Language is integrated into the show. There will be a post-show discussion after each performance. These can be interpreted into BSL if required.
