Returning to North America following its highly acclaimed off-Broadway run in Fall 2008, ‘The Grand Inquisitor’ adapted from The Brother Karamazov returns. Developed over a decade with longtime collaborating actor Bruce Myers, the action takes place in Seville during the Inquisition. In his infinite mercy, Christ returns to the world of man in the human form he wore during his 33 years on earth and enters the burning streets of the city, where, the previous day, the Grand Inquisitor had sent a hundred heretics into the flames. The Cardinal Grand Inquisitor sees Him and his face darkens. He orders the guards to seize Christ and shut Him in a narrow vaulted cell. In the darkness, suddenly, the iron door opens and the Grand Inquisitor quietly enters. For a long moment, he stays in the doorway, studying the Holy face. Then he draws nearer, saying: ‘Is it You? You?’

« A longtime master of stage minimalism…in allowing the production to unfold in accord with the rhythms of the prose work it was drawn from, with no attempt to decorate it with visual or aural effects, Mr. Brook kept a tight hold on its power to move us to think and to feel.”  »
– The New York Times

« 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

« Don’t miss out. You may never get another chance to see something with this combined pedigree in physical theatre. »
– The British Theatre Guide (UK)

« A revelatory evening. »
– The Daily Telegraph (UK)
