And, of course, our director Kathryn Hunter is currently working in Peter Brook’s latest theatrical offering at the Young Vic, The Valley of Astonishment. I am sure Peter Brook, from the height of his long lifetime achievement, and forty-four years after the circus-inspired magic of ‘Brook’s Dream’, would not take amiss this somewhat tongue-in-cheek tribute to Total Theatre.
