Some say power's an illusion. But Louis is the master of illusion. He has turned government into a spectacle, politics into a circus.

Nick Dear's new play on the origins of the Sun King is a dark and dazzling tale of ambition, corruption and illusion. The play premiered at the Royal National Theatre in London, in June 2003.
