GENTLE is a world premiere adapted and directed by Founding Artistic Director Zeljko Djukic, based on the short story A Gentle Woman, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It follows a young immigrant woman, a pawnbroker, and their maid over the course of a short, mysterious marriage. Dostoevskys brilliant tale of the obsessive power of ego, and its ability to push ordinary people to extraordinary measures, is modernized by Djukic as a story of our times. Surprising and sharp-witted, GENTLE combines the Russian master storytellers ability to reveal extremes of human nature, with TUTAs characteristic sophistication and inventiveness.
