Two-time Tony Award winner Peter Brook—widely hailed as the most influential director of the 20th Century—and his longtime collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne examine the complexities of crime, justice, and compassion in a breathtaking new international production. A man sits alone outside a prison. Who is he, and what is he doing there? Is he free, or is he the prisoner?
