Evoking Shakespeare by Peter Brook( Book )
23 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 499 libraries worldwide
"Based on a talk given by Peter Brook in Berlin, Evoking Shakespeare addresses a number of essential questions about performing Shakespeare today. 'Why is Shakespeare not out of date?' 'What do we mean by Shakespeare's "genius" or "creativity" or "poetry"?' 'What, in fact, is the Shakespeare phenomenon?'" "In attempting answers to these and other questions, Brook invites us to consider the actual conditions of the Elizabethan theatre and the actual qualities of Shakespeare's language. The result is a provocative take on our greatest playwright by one of his most influential modern interpreters."--Jacket

Ring round the moon, a charade with music by Jean Anouilh( Book )
2 editions published between 1950 and 1953 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
"According to Atkinson (Times), a play 'of many moods...wistfully romantic, satirical, fantastic...To make his points about love (the author) has invented a fable about twin brothers--Frederic, who is shy and sensitive, and Hugo, who is heartless and aggressive. Frederic is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer who masquerades as a mysterious personage and becomes the triumph of the occasion. She is a susceptible maiden in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical romances that have been going on before she arrived, but loses her own heart as well.'" -- Publisher's description
Lord of the flies ( visu )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 332 libraries worldwide
A group of boys, ages 6 to 12, survives a plane crash and becomes stranded on a deserted island. Ralph, Piggy and the others attempt to govern themselves, a task at which they fail disastrously. Two leaders--one civilized, one depraved--epitomize the forces of good against evil. In the hands of the renowned experimental theater director Peter Brook, William Golding's legendary novel on the primitivism lurking beneath civilization becomes a film as raw and ragged as the lost boys at its center. Taking an innovative documentary-like approach, Brook shot Lord of The Flies with an off-the-cuff naturalism, seeming to record a spontaneous eruption of its characters' ids. The result is a rattling masterpiece, as provocative as its source material
