About this show

Cleveland Play House presents a stage adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, a startlingly complex examination of man's capacity for cruelty and the redemptive power of goodness. Audiences enter the tortured world of Raskolnikov, one of the most fascinating figures in all of literature. What has he done? Why has he done it? And of what are any of us capable? These haunting questions are intricately woven into a stark, bracing and stunningly theatrical production that takes the audience on a heart-racing journey into the mind of a criminal. A thrilling psychological drama, Dostoevsky's timeless classic receives a swift and intense dramatization in which just three actors portray the novel's key characters.
