About: Peter Brook - C.I.C.T. / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord - 11 and 12

FIVE STARS – Michael Billington
'What I admired most was the simple beauty of Brook's staging.' The Guardian *****

Directed by Peter Brook, this new play, which comes to the Barbican as part of an international tour, explores an extraordinary conflict in West Africa under French occupation. It shows how a dispute over whether a certain prayer should be recited 11 or 12 times leads inexorably to hatred and massacres. The question of violence and the true place of tolerance make this epic story more than ever relevant today.
