Description

The Caucasian Chalk Circle is based on an ancient Chinese story where two women claim that one child is rightfully theirs. Brecht takes this parable as the central event in a play where profound love is inextricably caught up in a precise statement about the nature of justice.

This Complicité and National Theatre production was first performed in 1997, it was directed by Simon McBurney and starred Juliet Stevenson as Grusha.
