Dostoeyevsky. "All man wants is an absolutely free choice"

Max Gill has adapted Dostoeyevsky’s novel for the stage, and it comes to Camden’s Etcetera Theatre for a six day run in December. The show stars Peter Clements as the Underground Man, and Paloma Oakenfold as Liza. It is directed by Flipping the Bird’s Jessica Edwards and produced by Bryony Hope.

Sequestered in his fetid St Petersburg basement, the Underground man spits words.  He struggles to come to terms with the desperation and loathing that have parted him from society. At first, he is a solitary speaker. Later, he is an unwelcome traveller of the city’s restaurants, streets and brothels.

The production promises intimate staging, haunting visuals and an excellent ensemble cast.

13-18 December, 9.30 pm at the Etcetera Theatre, 265 Camden High Street. Tickets £6/£8.
