K-Pax, based on the novel 'On a beam of light', is a science-fiction psychological drama that explores human acceptance and how rigidly we hold on to our notions - scientific, moral and spiritual, without allowing space to question those very beliefs. The story is set in a mental institution whose newest patient claims to be an alien from the planet K-Pax. Although the initial prognosis is that he may be living with schizophrenia and multiple-personality syndrome, the story teases without taking a clear stance, nudging the viewer to make for herself/himself if the patient is indeed an alien. Or not. More than being about the possibility of intelligent alien life, the play explores the meaning of believing - in empathy, in acceptance and beyond all, in magic.
