Adapted from Bertolt Bercht's most celebrated play, The Caucasian Chalk Circle follows young servant girl Grusha who, in the throes of civil war, must make a choice, save her own skin or sacrifice everything to rescue an abandoned child. We track Grusha and the child's struggle for survival on her epic journey for justice. With a whirlwind of vivid characters, razor sharp humour and endlessly inventive imagery, Frank McGuinness' adaptation brings life to Brecht's deeply serious meditation on power and responsibility.
