In 1866, two years after the publication of Notes From Underground and while he was completing Crime and Punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky underwent one of several dramatic events in his life: he met a strong woman. The relationship is at the heart of The Jewel in the Manuscript, a play by Rosemary Zibart opening on Saturday, Feb. 1, at Warehouse 21.

Zibart had long been a fan of the Russian writer’s The Brothers Karamazov. When she and her husband, Jake Barrow, visited St. Petersburg she had to see the Dostoevsky House Museum. On the way out, she bought a small biography to read on the plane on the way home to Santa Fe. “You know how you’re sitting on the plane for those long, overseas flights with the little beam of light coming down onto what you’re reading? It’s pretty focused,” she told Pasatiempo.
