The Idiot

The Idiot

Jókai Theatre in Komarno, Komarno, Slovakia

Director: Huba Martin

Performed in Hungarian with English Translation.

2 hours 40 minutes with 1 breaks.

In a wicked, hedonist, and greedy world, those who are honest and decent are stigmatized. Idiot – that is what they call Prince Myshkin, the protagonist of Dostoevsky’s world-famous novel. And although the prince is laughed at for his kindness and naivety, the Christ-like behavior characterizing his existence in this world bound to perish lends him a unique power. Can man still be redeemed? Dostoevsky asks this question. Can the love of Christ find its way in the labyrinth of debauchery? Or does it meet with nothing more than a sigh, sarcastic laughter, a dismissive wave of the hand? The Jókai Theater in Komarno premiered the theatrical adaptation of Dostoevsky’s The Idiot in December 2017. The director of the production, Huba Martin, keeps returning to the theater. This was the eighth time he returned to Komarno with his creative team of set designer Jozef Ciller, costume designer Peter Čanecký (joining the group after Milan Čorba’s death), and choreographer Juraj Letenay. In July 2018, The Idiot won the audience award at the 30th Hungarian Theater Festival in Kisvárda, and Jászai Mari Award-winner Éva Bandor won an award for best supporting actress for her role as Lizaveta Prokofyevna
