Crime and Punishment

Fyodor Dostevsky

Theater Amore

1989


"Today I would interpret Crime and Punishment

as a novel about the motives behind idealistic murder.

I say 'today' because I am adapting the novel to create

contemporary theatre and in so doing I have a responsibility

towards the society I live in. Raskolnikov's article on the subject

of crime and the way he chooses to interpret it to the Public

Prosecutor Porfiry Piotrovich is of the greatest significance to me.

I know this kind of argument only too well: from the Nazi

Concentration Camps to the most recent political murders.

Bloodshed is acceptable if it is necessary (not even essential)

to the general progress of mankind."

Andrzej Wajda, 1984.
