Resist the political tyrant and protect an innocent life.

April 12 - May 13, 2018
The Caucasian Chalk Circle
by Bertolt Brecht
in an English translation by Alistair Beaton
directed by Allison Arkell Stockman
with Live Music by Tom Teasley

Caught in a social revolution, a young servant girl named Grusha promises her heart to a soldier on his way into battle. Soon the city is aflame and Grusha risks everything and becomes a refugee to save an abandoned baby. She must tiptoe across a precarious rope bridge strung across a gaping chasm in order to escape the enemy. In this corrupt and violent world, Grusha relies on compassion and perseverance to begin her own family. Brecht's epic adventure tale features vivid characters, high stakes scenarios and live music.
