SplitMoon Theatre is delighted to announce the world première of DEMONS at St Leonard’s Church in Shoreditch. Dramatised from Dostoevsky’s novel by Peter Stürm, who also directs, the site-responsive show will run from 25 October to 11 November 2017 and coincide with the Centenary of the Russian Revolution.

St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch High St, London E1 6JN

Demons is Dostoevsky's prophetic vision of the Russian Revolution, and the subsequent bloodshed under the Soviet regimes. Inspired by the 1869 murder of the student Ivanov by his former co-conspirators, it warns of the seductive lure and fatal consequences of ideologies. Dostoevsky's tragic satire vividly portrays the impact of radical, nihilist and populist ideas on a provincial town and echoes with particular resonance in today’s political landscape.

Demons is playing on the actual Russian Revolution Centenary nights: 25 October (old style calendar) and 7 November (new style). The final performance takes place on 11 November, Dostoevsky’s birthday.

The performance on 30 October will be a fundraising gala for the benefit of St Leonard’s Church.

“But here we have a force, and such a force, unheard-of! Everything will rise! And the earth will groan a great groan: ‘A new, just law is coming’, and the sea will boil up and the whole showhouse will collapse, and then we’ll see how to build up an edifice of stone. For the first time! We will do the building, we, we alone!” (Pyotr, Act 2)
