Featuring Ryan Crowder, Chelsea Manasseri and Ben Wolfe.
As a police inspector investigates a gruesome murder, we journey through the mind of a criminal. What did he do? Why did he do it? And what would you be capable of in certain circumstances? Before Law & Order, there was Crime and Punishment. Performed in 90 minutes with only three actors, this award-winning adaptation of Dostoevsky's masterpiece compresses all the tension and pathos of the novel into a powerful evening of theatre. Dive into the greatest crime story ever written, a tale of murder, motive and redemption that plumbs the depths of the human soul.
