'I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage', so begins Peter Brook's 1968 exploration of theatre, and his own life and career in it. He describes the, as he sees it, four types of theatre - deadly, holy, rough and immediate - and recounts his groundbreaking work at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
