The Caucasian Chalk Circle

A play for all times. The Caucasian Chalk Circle was written by 20th-century German modernist poet, playwright, and theatre director Bertolt Brecht amidst the mass upheaval and disruption of World War II.

It was crafted as a parable about kindness, value, and the difficulty of assigning justice in chaotic times. Our production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle will be an ensemble-driven piece: an evening of storytelling and music as told by our students. 

Directed by PMA associate professor Beth Milles.
