An adaptation of Flann O'Brien's original novel of the same name.
Set in Dublin and the Student's imagination.
A drink-addicted, bed-addicted student is writing a novel about a man who is writing a novel; the characters include an invisible fairy, a couple of cowboys from Ringsend and a mad airborne king from ancient Ireland. Under the influence of drink, tea and general ill-will, a group of characters go in search of their author in order to give him a good kicking. But it seems that the author in one story may be only a character in another.
Cast doubling is possible. See original production for details.
