TheatreRUN presents the world premiere of
An original adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s classic comic-neurotic-thriller
Two actors and one musician with a double bass collide in a schizophrenic feast of site and sound
TheatreRUN, the Dora Award-winning company that co-created the acclaimed Spent, presents the world premiere of The Double, a multi-disciplinary adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella of the same name. A dark comedic satire about our deepest fears of losing our identity, The Double previews February 2, opens February 3 and runs to February 19 at Factory Studio Theatre.
Conceived, created and performed by Artistic Director Adam Paolooza together with bass-player and lyricist Arif Mirabdolbaghi of the award-winning Canadian metal band Protest The Hero, The Double mixes elements of vaudeville and double bass for a jazzy exploration of alienation and paranoia.
The story of Mr. Golyadkin (whose name literally means “poor-fellow”), a St. Petersburg government clerk, is a man persecuted by his own personal neuroses. One day he meets his exact doppelganger, a man who shares the same physical likeness, name and background as he. This other Mr. Golyadkin is so akin to our hero Mr. Golyadkin in every way that you might even say he was his...Double!
Viktor Lukawski joins Paolooza and Mirabdolbaghi on stage in this hilarious cautionary tale about one man's desperate attempts to fit in with a grotesque society and his gradual descent into madness when this fails.
