The Caucasian Chalk Circle

By Berthold Brecht

Directed by David Frank

Brecht, the 20the century master of the dramatic form, tells the tale of Grusha, a lowly kitchen maid, who is only trying to stay out the way during a dangerous revolution, yet aids a baby abandoned by the Governorís wife who has fled to save her own skin. Rough-hewn justice and the chalk circle test bring the play to a sharply provocative and deeply satisfying conclusion.
