About this show

C.I.C.T./Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord's The Grand Inquisitor, adapted by Marie-Hélène Estienne from Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov, is directed by Peter Brook. Bruce Myers stars in the title role. The Grand Inquisitor takes place in Seville during the Inquisition. Christ, in his infinite mercy, returns to the world of man in human form and enters the burning streets of the city, where, the previous day, the Grand Inquisitor had sent a hundred heretics into the flames. The Grand Inquisitor has Christ imprisoned and asks, "Is it you? You?" This is a co-presentation with Theatre for a New Audience.
