Press Release
UK Premier
The Double
by Dostoevsky
Adapted by Kate McGregor

When your own reflection is your worst nightmare.

Dostoevsky’s classic novella The Double explores hapless Golyadkin’s world as it is thrown into turmoil when a man appears in his town who is his double in every respect except by blood. Set in 1848 Russia, a year before Dostoevsky was arrested for treason, the arrival of this man in St. Petersburg turns Golyadkin’s life upside down, threatening his job, home and even his sanity. The battle for survival begins in a time of political unrest where no one is to be trusted, not even your own reflection.

Perhaps the most Gogolesque of Dostoevsky’s works, which have influenced writers as diverse as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Frederich Nietzche. He is also considered a founding father of Existentialism.
This vibrant production has an ensemble of cast of 11 actors with live, original music from Theatre 6’s resident composer and musical director Maria Haik Escudero.
