Peter Brook (multi-Tony Award, multi-Emmy Award, and Olivier Award winner) and his longtime collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne examine the complexities of crime, justice, and compassion in a breathtaking new international production The Prisoner. A man sits alone outside a prison. Who is he, and what is he doing there? Is he free, or is he the prisoner?
Brook, an English theater artist and recognized as one of the most influential directors working today, has been based in France since the early 1970s. The Prisoner makes its New York premiere, codirected by Brook and Estienne.
