TDPS presents The Caucasian Chalk Circle by Bertolt Brecht

Performing Arts - Theater: Main Stage Productions | November 15 – 24, 2019 every day with exceptions |  Zellerbach Playhouse

 Christine Nicholson

 Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies

This captivating play within a play tells the corresponding stories of an agrarian land dispute and a young servant who sacrifices her own well-being to raise an abandoned child. Bertolt Brecht masterfully employs historification and distancing to reveal the hidden (and not so hidden) oppression of the powerless by the powerful. We are challenged not only to see the inequality inherent in power structures, but also to find ways to change our relationship to those structures—to find our way to justice, fairness, and compassion in the face of overwhelming odds.
