Peter Brook’s latest production asks a deceptively simple yet incredibly tricky question: Why? The 95-year-old theatrical genius takes this question to investigate the role of theatre in today’s society. Why theatre? What’s it for? What is it about?
Joined by his long-standing collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne and a fantastic ensemble, Brooks invites his audience on a dramatic and joyful journey. “Theatre is a very dangerous weapon.” Inspired by these words of the creative and innovative Russian director Vsevolod Meyerhold, actors Kathryn Hunter, Hayley Carmichael, and Marcello Magni will unfold a very human story, both dramatic and comic.
