                                  "...when a good person

                                   comes to the conclusion

                                 that he has a right to kill

                       a bad one, increasing his virtue by doing so

                      history starts to seem senseless and not serious..."


In this play there are many characters. It is a mixture of detective plots and an irresistible stream of an acting improvisation. And there are the repentant monologues of Svidrigailov, Raskolnikov and Sonja Marmeladova. When are we real? When are we playing with inspiration and when are we saying the truth?

This is a play about riders. Lonely riders in search of the truth.

All the women roles the same actress is playing: the girl, the young playwright, Katherine and Sonja. It is to her Raskolnikov is coming as to his last hope for healing of faith and love. Love what searches nothing for itself.

"The action happens here and now. Besides genres diversity the staging combines several theatre schools: the theatre of masks, characters theatre e t.c. The artists are given a space for improvisation, so each performance can be concidered a small premiere".
