jan 20-29 | the idiot

This huge ensemble piece features a whole bunch of PT artists.  You saw our man Tom Pickett last season in PLAYLAND and while it's been a little longer since Craig Erickson took the stage for GRACE, he's definitely part of the PT team.  Top it off with David Adams (JESUS, MY BOY), Andrew McNee (JESUS HOPPED THE 'A' TRAIN), and Dawn Petten (THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT) on stage and design work from frequent PT artists Bryan Pollock, Itai Erdal, and Sydney Cavanagh, and we're chock-full of PT!

In a world obsessed with money, power, and sexual conquest, is a sanatorium the only place for a saint?

The award-winning team that brought you Crime and Punishment returns with a new adaptation of Dostoyevsky's comic social critique, The Idiot, a world-premiere by writer/director James Fagan Tait and composer Joelysa Pankanea.

Scorned by the society of St. Petersburg for his generosity and innocence (his "idiocy"), Prince Myshkin finds himself at the centre of a struggle fueled by love, jealousy and greed.
