Review

Einer der größten und komplexesten Romane der Weltliteratur, ein 30-köpfiges Laienensemble, runde vier Stunden Spielzeit und als Zielgruppe Jugendliche ab 15 Jahren - kann das allen Ernstes gut gehen? Und wie! Die JugendTheaterWerkstatt Spandau macht aus Dostojewskis weit verzweigter Vorlage ein Generationsdrama mit einer Wucht, dass einem die Luft wegbleibt.

One of the longest and most complex novels in world literature, an ensemble of 30 amateur performers, about four hours playing time and targeted to an audience of youngsters age 15 and up – seriously, can this combination go well? And how! The JugendtheaterWerkstadt Spandau makes a generational drama out of Dostoevsky’s widely ramified original that packs such a powerful impact, it takes your breath away.
