Large Mixed Cast
A morality masterpiece, The Caucasian Chalk Circle powerfully demonstrates Brecht's pioneering theatrical techniques

A servant girl sacrifices everything to protect a child abandoned in the heat of civil war

Order restored, she is made to confront the boy's biological mother in a legal contest over who deserves to keep him

The comical judge calls on an ancient tradition the chalk circle to resolve the dispute

Who wins?
