The Grand Inquisitor
Directed by Peter Brook
“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
Theatricalizing one of the most profoundly moral works in all of literature, Brook has created a one-man show of urgency and intensity.
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.
