David Fishelson has transformed Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov and The Idiot into spellbinding drama that illuminates both titanic novels. The passionate Karamazov brothers spring to life, led by their roue of a father, who entertains himself by drinking, womanizing, and pitting his three sons against each other. The men have plenty to fight over, including the alluring Grushenka. In The Idiot, meet the kindly, childlike Prince Myshkin, as he returns to the decadent social whirl of 1860s St. Petersberg. The two most beautiful, sought-after women in the town compete for his affections, in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous.
