Crime and Punishment - Tweet Plays


Following its Lyceum debut during the Dark Road, The Village Pub Theatre is back with all new tweet plays, written by you! This time the 140 character tweet plays will compliment Chris Hannan's exciting new adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, directed by Dominic Hill as a Lyceum co-production with Citizens Theatre, Glasgow and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres.

We're looking for 140 character adaptations of epic novels (or any novel really). The best ones will be chosen and peformed live by a brilliant cast of actors including Vari Sylvester, Jenny Hulse and Keith MacPherson on the Lyceum stage at 7.15pm on the 8th of November before the evening performance of Crime and Punishment.

Follow @pubtheatre on Twitter for your chance to get involved, or come and enjoy this one off experience FREE when you have a ticket for Crime and Punishment on the 8th of November. Performances take place from 7.15-7.25 so don't forget to come a bit earlier than usual.

The Village Pub Theatre is a pop-up new writing theatre based in the Village Pub in Leith which presents monthly evenings of new plays by Scottish playwrights.
