The Caucasian Chalk Circle

Author(s): Bertolt Brecht, new version by Steve Waters

In this new version by Steve Waters (Limehouse, Donmar Warehouse), a tale about justice and humanity is propelled into the present, with original songs by Michael Henry (Barber Shop Chronicles, National Theatre) and a cast featuring Carrie Hope Fletcher as Grusha Vashnadze.

In the midst of a bloody revolution, a young woman risks all to raise the abandoned child of the Governor and his wife. Years later, when the Governor’s wife returns seeking her son, a rogue judge turns justice on its head. Can the test of the chalk circle determine which of the two women is the boy’s true mother?
