Hilarious, brutal and tragic, Delirium is a radical re-interpretation of The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky's classic and compelling tale of family rivalries. The play is the result of a collaboration between acclaimed company theatre o and award-winning playwright Enda Walsh.

The Karamazovs are a train wreck waiting to happen. A hated father and his sons battle it out over women, money and God. They don't so much live as burn up. Behind them lurks a servant, taking note of it all; and to the side, two beautiful women, clinging onto impossible loves.

This volume includes illustrations by Paddy Molloy.


'Unmissable... as brave, as searingly true and as epic as the original'

- Sunday Independent, Ireland

'A heady brew of lush phrasemaking, puppetry, rock music and whirling physicality that distils Dostoevsky's battle of good and evil into a couple of hours of demented theatrics. Not everyone's cup of tea, to be sure, but it catches how life can be petty, grubby and profound - often all the same time'
