Dmitry Karamazov’s Confession is a monodrama adaptation of a part of the novel by F. M. Dostoyevsky, where Dmitry Karamazov, shortly before his precipitation, decides to tell his despair to his brother Alyosha, his “angel on the Earth” and being at an impasse to beg him for an impossible- asking their father for financial help. This is a situational frame of the event that tells the story about a dead knot of their destinies in which both Dmitry and his father, as well as Ivan and Katarina Ivanovna and Grusenka as all others around them are inextricably entangled, but Dmitry Karamazov is the one out of whom the inextricability turns into a cry to solve unsolved…
