Written By: Philip Eno on 07/03/22 at 7:55 am

Peter Brook, one of the most creative and controversial stage directors of his generation, has died aged 97, the AFP news agency is reporting.

A precocious talent, by his mid-20s he had a reputation as the grand old enfant terrible of the British stage.

Over the ensuing decades Brook put his stamp on the theatre, breaking many established conventions.

His productions, starring some of theatre's most distinguished thespians, both enthralled and shocked audiences.

He also made a number of films, including the 1963 version of Lord of the Flies and The Tragedy of Carmen - the stage production of which had won awards.
