About The Caucasian Chalk Circle

Set deep in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia against a backdrop of violence and injustice, "The Caucasian Chalk Circle" is a play within a play. Amidst the rubble of a bombed out village in the aftermath of World War II, farmers debating the best use of their land enact a parable in which a humble kitchen maid risks her life to rescue an abandoned baby from civil war. But when peace is finally restored, the child's aristocratic mother returns to claim him. Calling upon the ancient tradition of the chalk circle, a comical judge sets about to resolve the dispute, and the entire social order of a corrupt and violent world is put on trial.

Translated by Alistair Beaton and directed by Stephanie Shroyer.
