Review: The Brothers Karamazov

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dostoevsky's story of The Brother's Karamazov is distilled eloquently into this 5 act play. Morality, politics, family alliances and faith are some of the themes explored in the witty dialogue of the play. We, alongside the characters, question the drives and motivations that promote, develop or destroy all that is seen as good or evil in the human condition.

The brother's between them are the 'Everyman'. Each one an aspect of our being such as intellectualism, spiritualism or sensualism and together as brothers, they are greater than the sum of the parts.
