On Tuesday 25 January 2005 Peter Brook visited Extant during rehearsals for Resistance.

Director Eileen Dillon and choreographer Aidan Treays led the cast through a morning of discussion and exploration of games, movement and text, and then showed some scenes from the play to Peter Brook.

I read the Jacques Lusseyran book ten or fifteen years ago and thought it was wonderful.

You are working in a very rich area. Good luck and I would very much like to see the production when it’s complete.

Peter Brook.
