THE IDIOT

June 1 - July 31, 1998

About Face Theatre

Adapted and Directed by Ensemble Member David Catlin
From the book by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

At a time in the mid-19th century Russia when each woman’s fate is arranged and bargained for, a brilliant and adored young woman struggles to escape the brutal realities of high society. Can one man, a frail and simple outsider, save her from her own self-destruction? Filled with incredible characters who live as if everything were on fire, The Idiot is both a melodramatic thriller and a spiritual quest that exposes the ugly underbelly of St. Petersburg’s upper crust, as well as the sublime and comic impulses of human nature.

Featuring Ensemble Members Lawrence E. DiStasi, David Schwimmer, Philip R. Smith, and Heidi Stillman, with Marilyn Dodds Frank, Anne Fogarty, Louise Lamson, Meg Rohlfing, Michael Shannon, Troy West, and Gary Wingert.
