The “Artistic Society of Performing Arts THEA.T.H” presents the first and most peculiar of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s masterpieces. It is a forerunner of his later works, such as Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Brothers Karamazov and Demons, because it deals with the social, political and moral ideas he negotiates in his above works. Breaking away from the established way of writing, he tells us about the escape from society to the underworld, “Underground”. From “Underground” emerges the passionate confession of a suffering man. His “No Mercy” self-criticism has highlighted him as one of the greatest Anti-heroes of all time in World Literature.
