Crime & Punishment & AVT

   Quartz Hill’s one and only theater group is presenting “Crime and Punishment” this month. Offering six shows in their Quartz Hill location, the Antelope Valley Thespians are kicking off their 2010 season in serious style with a play based on the classic novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
   Crime and Punishment, long considered a masterpiece of western literature, tells the story of the young scholar Roskolnikov who carries out a planned murder before he realizes what the moral and psychological consequences of his actions might be.
   With a diverse cast of characters and intense moments of suspense, the story explores Roskolnikov’s many ups and downs as he walks a tightrope of doubt and guilt. Will he be caught, arrested, punished?
   In this story, the crime is certain and it is the uncertainty of punishment that creates an atmosphere of tension and suspense pre-dating Hitchcock by a half-century.
   The Quartz Hill theater group has selected a theatrical adaption of the famous Russian novel as the first of three plays on the calendar for the Antelope Valley Thespians’ 2010 season. The season also includes “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” and “The Interrogation of Nathan Hale”.
