Director Peter Brook Passes Away
Sources state that the director passed away on Saturday since he had been based in France since 1974. “All of us at NHB [Nick Hern Books] are very sad to hear of the passing of iconic director Peter Brook, at the age of 97,” said the official statement his publisher issued on social media. They went on, “We’ve had the privilege of serving as Peter’s publisher for the past 20 years. Disseminating his knowledge and views to the globe. We’re grateful for the opportunity. He leaves behind a truly remarkable artistic legacy. RIP.”
Shakespeare in numerous iterations, worldwide opera, and even Hindu epic poems was among the mound of writing that Brook had produced. The director was recognized as the greatest of our time because of the wide breadth of his work. Although Brook was well regarded in the theatre community, the general public was unaware of his excellent works. He refused to cater to popular culture and left Britain in the 1970s to work in France.
In terms of his modest upbringing, Brook was born on March 21, 1925, in London. Both of his parents were employed; his mother was a scientist and his father had a business. At the age of 16, Brook stopped attending school and began working at a movie studio. He then brought his knowledge to Oxford, where he majored in English and Foreign Languages.
