Books on Discovery: Dostoevsky

Before he ever wanted to be a novelist, Dostoevsky dreamed of writing drama, and although he never made this dream a reality, generations of adaptors have been bringing this Russian master’s novels to the stage. Join us for three Monday nights as we look at memorable stage adaptations of The Brothers Karamazov, Crime and Punishment and The Idiot in our popular staged reading series.
