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.
The Grand Inquisitor is a co-presentation with Theatre for a New Audience and New York Theatre Workshop.
AfterWords (post-performance) discussions will take place on Tuesday, November 11 and Tuesday, November 19. TFANA Talks (free post-performance panel discussions with notable artists and scholars sponsored by Theatre For A New Audience) will take place on Saturday, November 1 after the 2pm performance, and Saturday, November 8 after the 2pm performance.
