Manolis Skouloudis adapts the homonymous novel of Dostoiyievski, maintaining the Russian atmosphere of the time in which it had been written as well as the form of the prototype. This play, which even its title consists a voluntary challenge against the arrogant apathy of the higher classes, deals with the following subject: to sketch the fair, the absolutely kind man. Prince Miskin, the principal hero, comes from Switzerland, attacked by epilepsy but thirsty through curiosity to know the Russian society. A benevolent nature with sensitivity and disarming honesty, he comes to put in action the imitation of Christ, before he sinks forever in insanity. The philosophy, religion, society and psychology of a whole period will be judged, compared with Prince Miskin's over-sensitive personality, which though admired will be also, mocked, hated and never understood. This society, instead of curing him, it will lead him in stupefaction, in frantic blindness and the final stupidity.
