Internationally-acclaimed director Robert Woodruff and OBIE Award-winning actor Bill Camp join forces to stage Notes from Underground—the revolutionary novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky, author of Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov—in a world premiere production.
“I am a sick man...I am a wicked man,”cries the Underground Man, one of modern literature's first, and most remarkable, antiheros. A former government official who has defiantly withdrawn from a corrupt society, the Underground Man wages his own personal war on everything—and everyone—around him. Notes from Underground is the passionate, obsessive, and contradictory confession of a tormented soul.
Making his Yale Rep debut, Robert Woodruff—a major force in the American theatre for more than three decades—is known for his inventive interpretation of new and classic plays at American Repertory Theatre, Lincoln Center, Goodman Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, and Habimah National Theatre in Tel Aviv.
