Theatre Royal Bath
Director: Laurence Boswell
Dostoyevsky’s classic story of a man’s gradual descent into hell, haunted by his own doppelganger, had a hugely acclaimed run at Bath Theatre Royal in autumn 2012.
Jon’s score ranged from echoes of Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Stravinsky to brooding soundscapes and quirkily eccentric sound design.
‘…combines the febrile precision of a farce with the hallucinogenic atmosphere of a nightmare…its signature note is head-turning brilliance’ (The Telegraph ****)
‘creepily compelling…gleefully grotesque….a playful sinister danse macabre. Social inequality, the tyranny of meaningless work, the torment of unrequited love, humanity’s capacity for cruelty – all loom menacingly over one unravelling man. It could happen to any of us. Horrifying – and horribly entertaining’ (The Times ****)
‘..the meticulous timing of direction and musical composition is extraordinary’ (WhatsOnStage****)
