Caucasian Chalk Circle

20-23 June 2018

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

'This was a time of terror, this was a time of hell.'


A regime is overthrown and a baby abandoned. In a place turned upside-down, a servant girl does all she can to protect the child. Order restored, the child's mother wants him back. But who does he belong to now? The old ritual of the Chalk Circle will decide.


Bertolt Brecht's masterpiece is retold for our own complex times. In a world of revolt, populism and displacement, how does power show itself? And who really knows best? This breathless adventure is explained with immediacy and vitality, confirming the enduring relevance of Brecht's theatre and politics.
