"To be able to take the original book and manage to extract everything needed for a ninety-minute play is just amazing ... Hats off to Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus for producing such a well-written flowing narrative."  --London, UK, Westend

 

“CRIME AND PUNISHMENT” in a feat that rivals the construction of the Hoover Dam, has been distilled into a taut 90-minute play by Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus, and the production will banish any bad memories you might have of trying to struggle through Dostoyevsky’s book.” -- Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

 

“THE BEATS,” adapted by Marilyn Campbell, and first seen at Writers’ Theatre in 1997 is now getting what will surely be the defining production of this generation at Berwyn’s now hotly competitive 16th Street Theater. --Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

 

"MY OWN STRANGER," by Marilyn Campbell and Linda Laundra, is a return to the core of poetry as performance, and the best sort of union of language and presence ... A must see!  Absolutely riviting.  --Sacramento News, 2013

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT,

Corpus Christ Owlets

University of Oxford (2017)

"The subject matter of this distillation of Crime and Punishment may be chilling, even harrowing. But its lesson that humanity can triumph over delusions of power is a timeless and heartening one.  Those lucky folk in possession of a ticket for Corpus Christ Owlets' production can prepare themselves for a sophisticated and enthralling treat."
