“In this world, men shed blood like champagne and become heroes of humanity – dropping bombs on people is no more respectable than what I did.”
This haunting interpretation, exploring the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of a poor student who murders a miserly pawnbroker, is reimagined in Putin-era St. Petersburg. Hailed a 'resounding success', it brings fresh relevance to this chilling tale.

“Adding televisions and pop-cultural references to the scenery adds a new angle to the piece ... a resounding success” – 4 stars Grovel
“An excellent... and atmospheric translation of Crime and Punishment, Dostoyevsky’s famous tale of mental anguish and moral dilemmas. David Zane Mairowitz does a fine job of modernising the story of Raskolnikov and... is well-aided in maintaining the story’s intensity by artist Alain Korkos, who creates haunting environments filled with all manner of grotesques.” – The First Post
An acclaimed new translation of the classic Russian novel.
