As previously reported, Sheila Daniels will direct the three-member cast: Hana Lass (Sonia), Galen Joseph Osier (Raskolnikov) and Todd Jefferson Moore (Inspector Porfiry). Crime and Punishment officially opens April 3 and will run through May 3.
Penned by Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus, the 90-minute adaptation of Crime and Punishment will feature designs by Carey Wong (set design), Melanie Taylor Burgess (costume design), Dans Maree Sheehan (lighting design), Joseph Swartz (sound design) and Peter Dylan O'Connor (fight choreographer).
"This adaptation captures the essence of Dostoyevsky's story, crystallizing the theme of redemption within a framework that is part detective story, part psychodrama," director Daniels said in a statement. "Expounding on the novel, the script lays the groundwork for a heightened theatricality by placing the entire story in the hands of three actors, barreling through twists and turns at a heart-racing speed."
"Raskolnikov, a poor student," press notes state, "murders two women in an attempt to prove that he is one of the 'extraordinary' people: those who have the right to kill. As he is interrogated by Inspector Porfiry, flashbacks reveal the murderer’s life and relationships — particularly his love for Sonia, a young woman who represents his one hope for redemption — and the deeper psychological motives for his crime."
