Meet the cast – Ashleigh Cordery


Where in the UK are you from?

What was your first theatrical experience, either on stage or in the auditorium?
My end of second year play was the first time I performed in a proper theatre and it was incredible and overwhelming all at once

What was your first experience of Brecht?
It was again my end of second year play at drama school, THE GOOD PERSON SEZCHUAN and I played Shen The/Shui Ta

What was your first experience of The Caucasian Chalk Circle?
I actually hadn’t read the play fully until I saw this production was casting online but borrowed it from a friend and read it before applying

What was your first thought when you heard about a production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle?
I loved the story and felt a real connection to the hardships that Grusha had to endure as well as an empathy for the decisions she makes through out the play. I also felt there were a lot of parallels between the play and current events and it would make a really relevant and interesting piece that, although written in a another era, could still make a strong comment on modern affairs.

That Face by Polly Stenham
