Adapted from the riveting novel of Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov was the first great theatrical success of the well-known French playwright, Jacques Copeau (1879-1949). Copeau adapted the drama with his friend, Jean Croue, bringing it to the stage in 1911, where it was an immediate hit. Copeau later revived the drama for production on Broadway in 1918. Frank J. Morlock's translation is the first new English-language edition to be offered since the 1920s. A major theatrical event!
