The Idiot at PuSh

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Neworld Theatre and Vancouver Moving Theatre return to the PuSh Festival with a musical adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot. The work asks the question “In a world obsessed with money, power, and sexual conquest, is a sanatorium the only place for a saint?” Sounds just about right. You can see this premiere January 19-29.
