Theatre thriller based on the book by the Russian writer Dostoevsky.  

The young student Raskalnikov has no money left to pay his rent. He feels powerless and he finds society unjust. How can he live in a world where poverty and misery are the lot of most people?  

His answer is radical.  

So radical that he loses his humanity and becomes a murderer.  

The story takes place in the bustle of the city, in a labyrinth of different cultures and characters, smells and colors and with music based on Russian symphonies.  

Crime and Punishment is a mix of exciting intrigue, psychological analysis and big ethical questions.
