Crime and Punishment

date. March, 2012

venue. Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre

credits. Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Marilyn Campbell, Curt Columbus

This new and award-winning adaptation of a classic piece of literature is told as an intimate psychological and spiritual journey, revealing the potential of both ugliness and beauty within everyone. The story is largely set in the mind of the young protagonist, Raskolnikov, where he relives and explores the thoughts, ideas, and feelings that drove him to his crime of murder; all the while Porfiry, a detective with impeccable intuition, and Sonia, a prostitute who still holds tightly onto her faith, urging him to confess his crime. The play becomes a psychological landscape which creates a thrilling journey into the mind of a killer and his search for redemption. Caught between his conscience and his arrogance, Raskolnikov must find the way out of his self-created prison and decide who he will become.
