In 2007, the play won Ivan Radoev Bulgarian Drama Competition Award. Ikar 2012 Award for best performance and for best set design.

True to his uncommon genre forms Boyan Papazov characterizes his play Knight of the Holy Spirit as an “alcohol-induced hallucinosis”. In a state of alcohol-induced delirium Filyo Gologana invokes the ghost of his friend, Aleko Konstantinov, a lawyer and writer who was murdered in 1897 while travelling in a coach with Mihail Takev, also a lawyer. In a carnival mood, with exceptional language play and actors’ plasticity the performance recreates the trial at which Aleko appearing as a Noble Spirit paradoxically defends his murderers. A performance about national heroes and ideals, about the state of the spirit in the past and today.
