Crime and Punishment

'Do you believe in Lazarus, rising from the dead?'

Condensing a classic tale into a ninety minute-long drama, this award-winning adaptation brings all the richness of Dostoyevsky’s masterpiece to the stage.

An elderly moneylender is dead, killed with an axe in her St Petersburg apartment; a destitute former student sits before a police inspector. The interrogation that follows is an intense psychological and philosophical exploration of the ideas and experiences that erupted into this crime.

An exploration of morality, insanity and redemption, Crime and Punishment takes a fascinating deep dive into the psychology of a criminal.

Driving Miss Daisy

Theatre Royal Bath Productions presents: In Atlanta 1948, the prickly 72-year-old Jewish widow, Daisy Werthan, crashes her car. Deemed too old to drive, her son hires her a chauffeur, an African-American named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but as times change across the course of a 25-year backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, a profound and life-altering friendship blossoms.

Starring the multi award-winning Dame Siân Phillips (I, Claudius, Dune) and RSC actor and legendary children’s show presenter, Derek Griffiths (Coronation Street, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), this is a moving, funny, and ultimately hopeful story.

From its landmark Off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the 1989 film version, which was the winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Driving Miss Daisy has touched the hearts of millions worldwide.
