Australian premiere of UK thriller
Producers Jane Angharad & James Smithers Director Anthony Skuse
"Magnificent... a fluent, beautiful, profoundly theatrical account of one of the great stories of world literature." SCOTSMAN
Starving, destitute student Raskolnikov is surrounded by the harsh injustices of the world: the grime of poverty and prostitution, unscrupulous pawnbrokers chasing debts, and a sister about to marry someone she doesn’t love to keep her family alive. Convinced that he is acting for the greater good, Raskolnikov commits a brutal murder.
His guilt is unbearable. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer any chance of redemption. As Raskolnikov enters a dangerous cat and mouse game with the examining magistrate, a psychological thriller unfolds that probes how far humanity might go when driven by disillusionment and whether any crime can be justified by a higher purpose.
An exciting and fresh adaptation of one of the most extraordinary novels of all time.
