A man boards a train: the confined space of the carriage triggers potent memories. Soon he is confessing to a terrible crime, one for which he holds Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata responsible.

‘Nancy Harris’s English adaptation combines icy precision with mordant wit…’ - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

‘Nancy Harris’s crisp and emotionally intelligent adaptation conveys the power of the Tolstoy original….. The experience of Harris’s play is a jolt to the system, a journey into the pathology of suspicion and self-loathing’ - Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

‘An extraordinarily compelling adaptation of Tolstoy’s great, warped novella.’ - Paul Taylor, Independent

‘Tolstoy’s sensational 1889 novella has been dashingly adapted by Nancy Harris – she can wield a knife as precisely as Pozdynyshev.’ - Kate Kellaway, Observer

Though this ‘Kreutzer Sonata’ hews to the shape and plot of the original, Ms. Harris has given it a wry, worldly, distinctly British flavor” –
