Lazarus Theatre Company's New Production of THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE Opens Tonight

Lazarus Theatre Company presents THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE by Bertolt Brecht in a version by Frank McGuiness, now through Saturday 12 March 2016. Press night is tonight 25 February at 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.

On the production team are director Ricky Dukes, associate director Gavin Harrington-Odedra, designer Sorcha Corcoran, lighting designer Stuart Glover, sound designer Neil McKeown, costume designer Rachel Dingle, and featuring songs by Robert Locke Producer.

Cast to be announced shortly.
