Join our final year undergraduate Performing Arts students for a performance of The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht, in a new translation by Alistair Beaton.The curtain will go up on the production at the Creative Campus Kingsway, Chester, at 7.30pm on Thursday 23 February and Friday 24 February.
Tickets cost £8 or £5 for concessions/students.
The Caucasian Chalk Circle is one of Brecht’s most celebrated works, featuring vivid and amusing characters, and raising questions about power and ownership.
A play within a play, it transports the audience to a city in the heat of civil war and introduces them to a servant girl sacrificing everything to protect an abandoned child.
But when peace is finally restored, the boy’s mother comes to claim him. Calling upon the ancient tradition of the Chalk Circle, a comical judge sets about resolving the dispute. But in a culture of corruption and deception, the play asks, who wins?
