Dostoyevsky’s monumental novel is transformed into spellbinding full cast drama by playwright David Fishelson. The Idiot centers around the kindly, childlike Prince Myshkin as he returns to the decadent social whirl of 1860s St. Petersburg. The two most beautiful, sought-after women in the town compete for his affections in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous.
