The Caucasian Chalk Circle returns to the stage this year
Bertolt Brecht's classic morality play The Caucasian Chalk Circle is revived for modern-day audiences in this fantastic upcoming production at Kingston's Rose Theatre this October.
What is The Caucasian Chalk Circle about?
'Now hear the tale of the trial for the Governor's child To establish the rightful mother Through the legendary test of the Chalk Circle'
An epic and entertaining story, this adaptation of The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a tale of hope, justice, and humanity in a time of chaos.
Steve Waters (Donmar Warehouse, Limehouse) presents a new version of Brecht's work in this production, relocating the play from warring Soviet communes to a modern-day refugee camp, where a fight erupts over a land dispute. Seeking resolution, a singer sets out to resolve the conflict by telling the tale of The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
During a bloody revolution, a young woman risks everything to raise the abandoned son of the Governor. The Governor's wife returns years later, seeking her child. However, a rogue judge turns weighs in and devises a test. But can the Chalk Circle test really decide who the boy's true mother is?
