About this show

Master director John Doyle, whose dazzling interpretation of Sweeney Todd electrified A.C.T. and Broadway audiences, returns with a bold new interpretation of Brecht's moving tale of love and power. In the land of Caucasus, a servant girl saves the life of an abandoned baby boy. But when the wealthy mother returns to claim him, their fates lie in the hands of a wily, unpredictable judge whose concern for the poor is rivaled only by his concern for saving his own hide. Featuring Doyle's signature theatricality and an original score, The Caucasian Chalk Circle soars with humor, romance, unexpected plot twists, and high-stakes intensity.
