The Caucasian Chalk Circle

  • Jack Studio Theatre 410 Brockley Road London, SE4 1QZ United Kingdom (map)

FEB 23 - MAR 12

Tuesday – Saturday, 7.45pm



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.  Launching their 2016 season, The Caucasian Chalk Circle marks Lazarus Theatre’s return to The Jack Studio after their sell out productions of The Revenger’s Tragedy and The Merchant of Venice.



“Electrifyingly staged... A striking and rewarding climax... Staged by the London fringe masters of the classics” ★★★★   Entertainment Focus on Dido Queen of Carthage

“Excellent...This is cutting-edge Shakespeare, don’t miss it. Lazarus’ work epitomises the spirit of fringe theatre” ★★★★ Everything Theatre on Troilus and Cressida

“A smart and muscular revelation…Stunning imagery…It sweats ambition.” Time Out on Coriolanus
