A challenging and thought-provoking piece of theatre, and one of Brecht’s best-known plays, it is an excellent example of his “epic theatre”. The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a story told by a singer about a servant girl who rescues a noble child, becoming his rightful mother. Directed by David Aldred, Head of Drama, and featuring a cast of 26, the production will feature music performed by the pupil band The First Reserves

A brief note from the Director, ‘Our performance has been originally conceived; I don’t think any of our ensemble has seen the play performed before, and the great marvel of Brecht’s writing is the endless possibility for reinvention of the script, tailoring its message to our own time and place. It’s been a pleasure to be a part of and I do hope you enjoy watching the performance.’
