Written by Claire Booker
Directed by Leigh-Anne Abela

A topical tale about injustice, deceit, passion and the search for the truth.

Russian landowner, Zhenya, sows wild oats with one of his peasant girls, but puts it all behind him when he marries – or so he believes.

Inspired by a Tolstoy short story, the play follows Zhenya’s obsession and its murderous consequence, as he finds himself driven mad with desire for Stepashka. Desperate to end his guilty liaison and safeguard his marriage, he shoots her and stands trial for murder. But can there be true justice in an unjust society? And is it guilt, insanity or the supernatural that finally haunts him?
