WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Nikolai Gogol's dark piece as reimagined by Ilia Volok centers on the gradual decline into insanity by Poprishchin, a low-ranking civil servant who yearns to be noticed by the beautiful daughter of a senior official. More than just unrequited love, Madman delves into class wars and an everyman's quest for individuality in an indifferent urban city. Don't be so quick to think this only happens over there.
