A girl must make a choice… to take the child and run, or leave him behind in the fury of civil war.
Brecht’s thrilling and revolutionary play follows a young girl who makes the biggest decision of her life. Set against the back drop of war and mutiny, Grusha seeks refuge and asylum.
Her crime: saving the son of the fleeing establishment.
Her reward: The Chalk Circle.
This inventive ensemble production draws on Brecht’s pioneering techniques and thrilling text, set to an original score.
Our ★★★★★ production returns for 7 performances only after a sell-out run in 2016 at The Jack Studio Theatre.
