If there was one man in the whole world who knew how ridiculous I was – it was me.
On an uneventful Wednesday in a drab Borough of East London, an ordinary man has a startling revelation: life is an unhappy accident in a meaningless universe.
He gets himself a gun.
But before he can use it, he dreams of an innocent, alternative earth, where people live in harmony with nature and each other. Elated, he sets out to tell the world about his dream and share his new vision of a happy planet.
Dostoyevsky’s tragic-comic adventure is transported to 21st century London in a one-person tale of wonder with an urgent warning for our world. A funny and serious story of hope, that with love and trust we can build a better world. Maybe.
