A silhouette of a priest in robes stands against a red and orange background. The title of the play is above the priest.

This play explores Dostoevsky’s chilling parable about life, religious faith, and the stories that hold our society together. A monologue of urgency and intensity adapted from The Brothers Karamazov.

Produced by Riverside Theatre in collaboration with the Iowa City Book Festival and the University of Iowa Libraries Main Library Gallery exhibit, From Revolutionary Outcast to a Man of God: Dostoevsky at 200.

Written by Marie-Helene d’Estienne
