Brilliant UK Premier
The Double
by Dostoevsky
Adapted by Kate McGregor

When your own reflection is your worst nightmare.

"I have heard whispers of rebellion in dark corners, and straight from the mouths of people we trust."

Golyadkin is an ordinary man, but this is no ordinary world.  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 Russia in 1848, a year before Dostoevsky himself 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. His battle for survival begins in a time of political unrest where no one is to be trusted, not even your own reflection.

The Double is 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 cast of 11 actors with live, original music from Theatre 6’s resident composer and musical director Maria Haik Escudero.

"As Dostoevsky examines the neurosis and paranoia that cripple a seemingly ordinary man, he produces a thoroughly brilliant 'modern' nightmare."
Jeremy Dyson on Dostoevsky's 'The Double'
