Photo Flash: First Look at Trinity Rep's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Trinity Rep leaps into 2013 with a bold retelling of Dostoyevsky's classic psychological novel Crime and Punishment, directed by Brian Mertes. Running through February 24 at Trinity Rep, co-adaptors Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus have spun Dostoyevsky's complex story into a 90-minute, three actor tour-de-force with a modern, poetic flair. Moving seamlessly between past and present, the play's tension - will a man get away with murder? Should he? - builds to an explosive climax. Get a first look at the actors onstage in the photos below!

The three-person cast features TV film and stage actor Dan Butler in his first return to the Trinity Rep stage after a 28-year hiatus. Butler is instantly recognizable from numerous film and TV appearances, including his six season role as Bulldog on Frasier.

Butler plays astute detective Porfiry who is doggedly determined to solve a grisly murder. Current Trinity Rep resident company member Stephen Thorne plays Raskolnikov, the former student who commits a heinous crime and is then wracked with guilt over his actions. Rachel Christopher rounds out the cast as the prostitute Sonia, the self-sacrificing young woman who becomes a source of strength to the tortured Raskolnikov.

Regular and discounted tickets for Crime and Punishment are on sale now at the Trinity Rep box office, 201 Washington St.; by phone at (401) 351-4242; and online at www.trinityrep.com.
