by Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky

Poor student Raskolnikov believes he has committed the perfect murder when he slays a greedy old pawnbroker. Great men, he thinks, are allowed to destroy "life unworthy of life" in order to promote "life worth living". But he has made the calculation without the astute investigating judge Porfirij, who pushes him further and further into a corner despite the lack of evidence.


In a stage adaptation for the KantTheaterBerlin, Anette Daugardt and Uwe Neumann have taken the novel by the Russian writer Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky, published in 1866, as their model and turned it into an exciting play. Closely following the original text, they limit themselves to the exact description of the murder and to the interrogation scene in which the crime finally comes to light.
