Peter Brook


Born - 21 March 1925, Chiswick, London, England
Died - 2 July 2022

Narrow-eyed, serious-looking and later balding British stage director/writer with distinctive low eyebrows. A legend of the theatre, Brook also made a few interesting films, including one while still at university: A Sentimental Journey (1947), The Beggar's Opera (1953), Moderato Cantabile/Seven Days...Seven Nights (1960), Lord of the Flies (1963), The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat As Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade/Marat-Sade (1966), Ride of the Valkyrie (1967), Tell Me Lies (1968), King Lear (1970), Meetings With Remarkable Men (1978) and La Tragedie de Carmen (1983). That was his last film, although he directed several episodes of the TV mini-series The Mahabharata in 1990 and continued his theatre work into his nineties. He was married to stage and screen actress Natasha Parry, who died in 2015. The actress Irina Brook is one of their two children. He died at his home in France.
