Seeking:

Porfiry:

45-54, the police inspector trying to figure out a puzzling crime. Unlike our cop-show types, Porfiry is far more curious and fancies himself a bit of an intellectual and is fascinated by the latest trends in criminal psychology. He loves the challenge of trying to ferret out the truth, and loves to keep his suspects guessing. And he is persistent. Boy is he persistent. Also plays Marmeladov, a loud and obnoxious drunk given to swings of emotion and philosophical displays when under the influence.

Raskolnikov:

25-34, an ex-law student. But unlike the graduate student type in Chekhov, this guy has a simmering volcano beneath the surface. He thinks so much, so deeply and so passionately that his thoughts can’t fit in his brain and threaten to explode from his head. Probably lanky, pale, on the verge of malnourishment. Hungry in many ways. Too sensitive for his own good, a clinical depressive before there was such a thing.

Sonia:

20-25, younger than Raskolnikov, her innocence is always about to leave her in the play. She is probably not particularly pretty; in fact, she’s likely to be plain. Thin and pale, possibly painfully so. What is attractive about Sonia is her curiosity and innocence, and her wide-eyed belief in the innate goodness of man. Fragile, though not in the Laura Wingfield/southern sense. Also plays Alyona Ivanova, a 60ish, miserly and extremely nasty pawnbroker – the living opposite of Sonia
