One of my very favorite plays is the one act Escorial. It concerns the King of Spain, the very unpopular ruler of Flanders for I believe years. But the central character is the kings fool. The fool sits on the throne and pretends to be king. Everyone appears to believe him. The real king was Charles II who was supposedly mad. I suppose Ghelderode point was if everyone treats a fool as if he is king how is that different than treating a madman as if he is sane.
If I were to stage it I wanted One of my very favorite plays is the one act Escorial. Sep 29, Julian Munds rated it liked it Shelves: plays-france. Gheldrode writes a kind of poetic theatre. His images are vibrant and red. His scenes full of angry faith. But it is not a Christian faith. It is a faith that you see when you look at stainglass window on cathedral. And opaque. Patagleize is my favourite play in this collection. Barrabas as well. The Blind Men is fascinating. Chronicles of hell would be crazy to watch and feel.
The others are slow. Halewyn makes little impact.

Michel de Ghelderode
The Stage Escurial Michel de Ghelderode was part of that extraordinary explosion of European playwrights who blended wit, emotion and absurdity to make sense of the mad interwar years in which they lived. First performed in , this one-acter is typical of his obsessions - the gloomy yet romantic setting of the 16th-century court of the Spanish king Felipe II, pithy period language and characters pitted against each other in a mind-twisting endgame. As his queen lies dying, the King Andy McQuade engages his fool, Folial Geir Kjelland , in a battle of wits that turns from cerebral to physical, while the Monk Corin Rhys Jones attempts to bring an occasional reality to break up their bouts. Theirs is a remarkable performance that never lets up in intensity yet builds to a climax which leaves the onlookers as drained as the actors. But it is difficult to understand what audience director Victor Sobchak is aiming for.
They belong to the theatrical tradition, which chooses religious themes and elaborates them from a cosmic aspect. Both of them have the peculiarity to exist between symbolism and surrealism. The plot in the play ''Chronicles of Hell'' refers to the battle between the animal and the corruptive forces. The forces of wear refer to the clergymen, in the closed society of the priests, somewhere in the Middle Ages, when the Clergy intervened in the social life of the people.
