A Gentle Creature (Krotkaya)

A depiction of human despair by Fyodor Dostoyevsky Teaterkompagniet TELL to JOY


A Gentle Creature is a confession of a Petersburg pawnbroker whose wife has just killed herself by jumping out of their window, clutching in her arms an icon of the Mother of God. It is a husband’s profound monologue delivered beside his lover’s corpse, a deep and touching story about human loneliness, about lack of empathy and our destructive tendencies, and an ever-actual classic about relating ourselves to the world and to our fellow human beings.
