DIARY OF A MADMAN

by David Holman

Produced by Matrix Theatre Company

 

May 16th to June 1st ’24

 

In a hard-hearted world riddled by prejudice and privilege, lowly bureaucrat and outsider, Aksentii Poprishchin, is intent on climbing the greasy pole to success.

Alone and sequestered in an attic, he tries to escape the hopelessness of his existence by making entries in a diary lampooning those who have made his life a misery. He acts these out to his maid and audience via a series of hilarious vignettes and imaginative flights of fancy.

It slowly emerges however that the outside world is one he can’t keep up with, where people with a “difference” are not tolerated and mental illness is shunned. As he becomes increasingly alienated by his fellow workers, Poprishchin deteriorates into delusion, paranoia and finally, tragically, into insanity.

DIARY OF A MADMAN is a hilarious and heart-wrenching classic about alienation, unrequited love and the descent into madness.

“A brilliant piece of theatre… Matrix Theatre’s production is a striking tour-de-force of a show with absurd hilarity and rich layering.”
