The Caucasian Chalk Circle
The Caucasian Chalk Circle

by Bertolt Brecht translated by Alistair Beaton
Directed by Mike Higginson

2nd to 9th June 2018

Based on an old Chinese story, Brecht’s play, written in 1944, was originally set in the Soviet Union but in this modern version it will be set in a timeless Eastern European State, ravaged by civil war. The prologue is an argument about landownership and post-war government intervention. The villagers of the affected territory however distract the government official, sent to take their land away, by putting on a play within the play, which becomes the “main event”. Also set in a civil war torn land it is a parable about a peasant girl who rescues a baby and becomes a better mother than its wealthy natural parents.
