Yale Repertory Theatre Presents the World Premiere of FIELD GUIDE

YALE REPERTORY THEATRE (James Bundy, Artistic Director; Victoria Nolan, Managing Director) presents the world premiere of FIELD GUIDE created by Rude Mechs, inspired by the novel The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky, January 26–February 17, at Yale Repertory Theatre (1120 Chapel Street). Opening Night is Thursday, February 1.

Strap on your snow shoes and join Rude Mechs on a surreal hike through one of the greatest—and longest!—novels ever written: The Brothers Karamazov. A physical meditation on Dostoevsky’s masterpiece, FIELD GUIDE enlists stand-up comedy, a dancing monk, and some old-school magic to explore faith, meaning, and morality.

FIELD GUIDE features text by Hannah Kenah, direction by Shawn Sides, scenic design by Eric Dyer, costumes by Sarah Woodham, lighting by Brian H Scott, original music by Graham Reynolds, sound design by Robert S. Fisher, dramaturgy by Amy Boratko, technical direction by Steph Wasser, fight direction by Rick Sordelet, and stage management by Bianca Hooi.

The performing company is Mari Akita (Alyosha), Lowell Bartholomee (Fyodor), Robert S. Fisher (Smerdyakov), Thomas Graves (Ivan), Hannah Kenah (Grushenka, Katya, Grigory), and Lana Lesley (Dmitri).

Tickets for FIELD GUIDE range from $12–99 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street). Student, senior, and group rates are also available.
