As we approach the opening of Crime & Punishment it’s time to meet the cast who will be bringing the Dostoyevsky novel to life on stage and interpreting the music of Toyah as you’ve never heard before.

Raskolnikov, a former student now destitute is played by Alec Porter

Alec is delighted to be making his theatre debut in London. Having played Friedrich in The Sound of Music UK Tour 2009 at the age of 14, Alec is looking forward to being back on the stage after graduating from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama this year. Whilst at Central, he enjoyed playing roles ranging from the exuberant Vittorio Vidal in Sweet Charity to the title role in Macbeth. He is thrilled to be working with London’s Free Open Air Theatre company.
