Peter Brook has a new book out. He's 92 and still active in the theatre. He directed his first professional production in 1943- which adds up to a career of 74 years and counting....|
When I was in theological college his classic text- The Empty Space- was on our reading list. It was hoped we'd learn from it how to liven up church services . It may not have saved the Church of England but it's a tremendous book- not only a brilliant exposition of theatre and what the point of it is but also, by extrapolation, a manual for living the good life.
I think of him as one of the wisest people on the planet.
