Prenzie Players Present: The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht
As an uprising breaks out in Grusina, a kitchen maid saves a royal child who was abandoned by his mother. Pursued by soldiers, she undertakes a risky journey to carry the child to the other side of the mountain so that he will be safe, “adopting” the child in the process.
Two years later, when the political situation returns to normal, soldiers find the child and take him away,
charging the kitchen maid with kidnapping in the process, at the request of his mother. The two women must appear in court to fight for the custody of the child. They appear before a judge with his own idea of justice who must decide which woman should keep the child: the mother who abandoned her child, or the woman who cared for him when he was left behind?
Bertolt Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle retells the story of The Judgment of Solomon and explores what happens when the law opposes justice.
