Crime and Punishment

Stage Version

By Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Adapted by Chris Hannan
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781848423657, 112 pages, September 2014


An exciting, fresh and accessible adaptation of Dostoyevsky's masterful novel. 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. As Raskolnikov enters a dangerous cat and mouse game with the 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.
