Shared Experience's production of Bertolt Brecht's satirical masterpiece. Read More >

In The Caucasian Chalk Circle, the city burns and civil war rages. A servant girl discovers an abandoned baby, but when peace is finally restored the boy’s real mother comes to claim him. Calling upon the ancient tradition of the Chalk Circle, a judge sets about resolving the dispute.

Following its memorable Jane Eyre, Shared Experience returns with this powerful new production of Brecht’s satirical masterpiece.

This vivid production includes an original score performed by an onstage chorus drawn from members of the community.
