Lazarus Theatre Company's THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE Returns for a Strictly Limited Run

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 Caucasian Chalk Circle.

This inventive ensemble production draws on Brecht's pioneering techniques and thrilling text, set to an original score. Our 2016 sell-out production returns for a limited 7 performances only.

Lazarus is an award-winning Theatre Company, re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience.

"To kick off our 10th year with the return of our Chalk Circle is fantastically exciting! We are looking forward to returning to our home town and to The Greenwich Theatre after our epic rep of King Lear and Dido, Queen of Carthage in 2013. We can't wait to share this remarkable play with even more people." Director Ricky Dukes commenting on today's announcement.
