The Grand Inquisitor Summary

Renowned director Peter Brook (Marat/Sade, The Mahabharata) continues his long time collaboration with the renowned actor Bruce Myers (The Mahabharata, The Unbearable Lightness of Being) in Marie-Hélène Estienne’s (French version of Far Away) adaptation of the Inquisitor section of The Brothers Karamazov. Together, they bring Dostoyevsky’s chilling parable about the perversion of religious faith to life.
