King of Scotland is an award-winning, dark comedy and a free adaptation of Gogol's A Diary of a Madman.

Long-term unemployed Tommy McMillan joins a government-funded retraining scheme, 'Up the Ladder'. Cited as a shining example of the government's employment policies and chosen for a media profile, Tommy is taken on by the Department of Upward Mobility. The department gets more than they bargained for; however, when they discover just how far up the ladder Tommy is expecting to go.

Featuring trouserless bankers, talking dogs, flying taxis, and a razor-sharp parody of the workings of politics, King of Scotland is an outrageous Fringe First-winning monologue.
