Photo Flash: First Look at Shattered Globe Theatre's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT

Shattered Globe Theatre is pleased to launch its 2018-19 season with Chris Hannan's new stage adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's masterful novel CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. SGT Ensemble Member Louis Contey* directs an ensemble of eleven actors in this rich interpretation of one of the world's great literary treasures, playing September 6 - October 20, 2018 at SGT's resident home Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Ave. in Chicago. Single tickets are currently available at, by calling (773) 975-8150 or in person at the Theater Wit Box Office. The press opening is Sunday, September 9 at 3 pm.

One of the great stories of world literature comes to life in this fresh, theatrical adaptation featuring an ensemble of eleven actors as chorus and conscience. As Raskolnikov plays a dangerous cat and mouse game with a mercurial investigating magistrate, a psychological thriller unspools and probes how far humanity might go when driven by disillusionment and whether any crime can be justified by a higher purpose.

Comments Director Louis Contey, "Dostoyevsky is a master at creating complex and contradictory characters, and Chris Hannan has beautifully distilled the essential themes and motifs of this major 19th century novel. It has long been an ambition of mine to stage this classic, whose exploration of human isolation and disillusionment is so very timely."

The production team for CRIME AND PUNISHMENT includes: Nick Mozak (scenic design), Hailey Rakowiecki (costume design), Shelley Strasser (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design & original music), Vivian Knouse (props design), Judy Anderson (production manager) and Tina M. Jach (stage manager).
