PETER BROOK is one of the most famous theatre directors in the world today. Lauded for his 1964 Marat/Sade and his 1970 Midsummer Night’s Dream, both for the RSC, he now lives and works in Paris producing a series of events which push at the boundaries of theatre, such as The Mahabharata in 1985. His most recent UK production was The Suit seen at the Young Vic in 2012. His books, especially The Empty Space ( 1968) and The Shifting Point (1987), have sold thousands of copies worldwide.
