The Caucasian Chalk Circle

E-mail Print PDF


Tue 28 March-Sat 1 April 2017

A girl must make a choice... to take the child and run, or leave him behind in the fury of civil war.

Brecht’s thrilling and revolutionary play follows a young girl who makes the biggest decision of her life. Set against the back drop of war and mutiny, Grusha seeks refuge and asylum. Her crime: saving the son of the fleeing establishment. Her reward, The Caucasian Chalk Circle.

This inventive ensemble production from Lazarus Theatre Company draws on Brecht’s pioneering techniques and thrilling text, and is set to an original score. The acclaimed 2016 hit production transfers to Greenwich for a limited 8 performances only.

an exciting and engrossing piece of theatre... The overall effect is amazing
The Upcoming
Brecht as it should be - loud, large, with a point to make but always in control. A daring, collaborative production and one not to be missed.
London Pub Theatres
it doesn’t get much bigger for Brecht fans than The Caucasian Chalk Circle
Female Arts
Lazarus Theatre Company creates a very urban modern feel to this classic Brecht play… This is a very fine production... Extraordinarily powerful
