Goblin Baby Theatre Company are bringing Claire Booker’s 90-minute drama The Devil and Stepashka to London in June and July. The play is based on Tolstoy’s short story ‘The Devil’ in which landowner Zhenya’s obsession for one of his peasant women leads to murderous consequences. He stands trial for murder, but can there be true justice in an unjust society? And is it guilt, insanity or the supernatural that finally haunts him?
The Devil and Stepashka plays at The Space (269 Westferry Road, E14 3RS, Canary Wharf/Mudshoot tube) from Tues 10th to Friday 20th of June at 7.30pm. Matinee 2.30pm, Sat 14th. The play transfers to Ye Old Rose & Crown, (53 Hoe Street, E17 4SA, Walthamstow tube) for Sat 19th July (8pm) and Sun 20th July (6pm). Matinee 2pm, Sunday.
