By David Farr A radical, no-holds-barred reworking of Dostoyevsky's classic novel of alienated youth, set in the rough urban environment of contemporary North East LONDON.

A young black man bludgeons his Turkish landlord to death to free himself of what he describes as 'the white man's bailiff'.

But as soon as he commits the crime, he knows that what he has done will haunt him until he confesses his sins to the very authorities he so despises.

This production was first produced at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston and won 'Best Radio Drama' in the 2003 CRE Awards.
