“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.
