Dramatizing the famous passage from Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov that imagines Jesus returning during the Spanish Inquisition, Brook’s minimalist staging of the Inquisitor’s monologue is no less than a naked inquisition of our age, our complicity and our answers to his questions.

Theatricalizing one of the most profoundly moral works in all of literature, Brook has created a one-man show of urgency and intensity.

"Peter Brook coined the term Holy Theatre. And, for all its anti-clerical nature, evenings don't come much holier than this …Brook's production and Bruce Myers's performance have an austere grandeur."- The Guardian
