This award-winning adaptation of Dostoyevsky's towering masterpiece Crime and Punishment is told by three actors playing the murderer Raskolnikov, Detective Porfiry Petrovitch, young prostitute Sonia and many other characters in this famous story. This "conversation on the nature of evil" is set in the mind of the murderer where he relives and explores, through the urging of Porfiry and Sonia, the thoughts, ideas and feelings that drove him to his horrible crime. The play becomes a psychological landscape that creates a fascinating journey into the mind of a killer and his search for redemption. Raskolnikov even speaks directly to the audience at times, putting his case to them, so that the audience becomes another character in the telling. Learn More
