About this show

Amidst a city burning in the ravages of a civil war, an innocent girl will sacrifice everything to protect a seemingly abandoned child. Once peace and order are restored the child's biological mother returns to claim him. The fate of all three rests upon the ancient tradition of the chalk circle. Chock-full of vivid and hilarious characters with raucous and unforgettable live music, one of master storyteller Bertolt Brecht's greatest plays comes to life in a thrilling and comical new translation by award-winning playwright Alistair Beaton.
