Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment

Premiered January 2005, Roundhouse Community Centre

The perfect murder is planned by Raskalnikov, an intelligent yet destitute student who compares himself to a country at war. But from the first moment of its orchestration, the crime takes on a life of its own. Who will get Raskalnikov first – the police or his conscience? James Fagan Tait’s bold vision brings to life a haunting musical adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s epic moral journey.

Adapted & Directed by James Fagan Tait. Original Music by Joelysa Pankanea.
