Secret House presents Crime & Punishment adapted for the stage by Chris Hannan, based on the novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Directed by Anthony Skuse.

“Everybody wants to change the world, nobody thinks to change himself.” 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. Convinced that he is acting for the greater good, Raskolnikov commits a brutal murder. His guilt is unbearable. As Raskolnikov enters a dangerous cat and mouse game with the examining 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.

"Brilliantly adapted for the stage." - The Times

"Chris Hannan's superb stage version of Dostoyevsky's immense novel is an affecting and resonating work of theatre." - Sunday Herald

"It's both a classic come to life and an urgent new work that develops its own style and language."  - The Independent
