By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Adapted by Chris Hannan

'Both a classic come to life and an urgent new work which develops its own style and language rather than slavishly imitating the text and it’s all the better for it.' The Independent

An exciting, fresh and accessible adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s masterful novel.

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. His guilt is unbearable. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer any chance of redemption.

A psychological thriller that probes how far humanity might go when driven by disillusionment and whether any crime can be justified by a higher purpose.
