(Mark Brown’s article appeared in the Guardian, 7/28.)

Peter Brook is to return to one of his most celebrated productions with a new play drawing on a section of the ancient Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata.

The director’s nine-hour production of the Mahabharata 30 years ago has gone down in theatre history as one of the greatest and, if you were there, memorable productions of all time.

Marie-Hélène Estienne, a long-time collaborator who worked as Brook’s assistant on the Mahabharata in the 1980s, said it would be impossible to stage in its entirety again.
