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.
