Notes from Underground

John Cooper takes Dostoyevsky's ?underground man' from the nineteenth century novella Notes From Underground and transposes him from St. Petersburg to a subterranean, contemporary London, revealing the universality of the Russian author's writings Cooper's play, based on the second part of the novella, A Story of the Falling Sleet, depicts the tragedy of a man turned in on himself, a man who both craves and despises affection.
Author John Cooper (inspired by Dostoyevsky)
