April 13, 2017, Thursday - Battlefield opens at Guthrie Theater

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Guthrie Theater, 818 South 2nd Street

The Guthrie WorldStage Series presents Battlefield
based on the Mahabharata and the play by Jean-Claude Carrière
adapted and directed by Peter Brook
and collaborator Marie-Hélène Estienne

Legendary British director Peter Brook and his longtime collaborators Marie-Hélène Estienne and Jean Claude Carrière are no strangers to epic storytelling: in 1985 they conceived, wrote and directed the Mahabharata, a nine-hour production that was lauded as one of the greatest theatrical achievements of all time. Thirty years later the collaborators have returned to the Indian epic to create this 70-minute landmark production, a revised and extended excerpt from the ancient Sanskrit poem. 

Battlefield uses four actors and a musician to evoke the apocalyptic aftermath of a war between rival members of the same family, while exploring the immeasurable costs of victory. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to experience Brook’s masterpiece on the Guthrie stage.

This production has mature content.
