Directed by Anna Brenner and created with the ensemble
Part murder mystery, part spiritual quest, this freewheeling distillation of Dostoevsky’s classic is mapped onto a modern American story about race, justice, trauma, and love. This project was mid-run at the New Ohio when the pandemic hit and is now being developed for film.
