by Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Eric Bentley
From Concord Theatricals: The Caucasian Chalk Circle is a parable inspired by the Chinese play Chalk Circle . Written at the close of World War II, the story is set in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, and retells the tale of King Solomon and a child claimed by two mothers. A chalk circle is metaphorically drawn around a society misdirected by its priorities. Brecht’s statements about class are cloaked in the innocence of a fable that whispers insistently to the audience.

In Brief: Widow Clack, 18 and pregnant, lives an exiled life running a lighthouse with her brother on a storm-crushed island set to be uninhabited in two days. When a young man is found dead on the beach, the remaining collection of young adults (left to make final preparations for the abandonment) combust into dangerous accusations leading to devastating division and ultimately, death. When a final, unexpected storm impacts the island, can Widow save the villagers from themselves?
