“The Caucasian Chalk Circle” by Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Lura Dolas
"Terrible is the temptation to do good." (Bertolt Brecht) Based in part on an ancient Chinese tale, Brecht's epic parable tackles an insoluble human dilemma: How to behave well, act justly, and remain humane in a world in which chaos reigns, good is punished, and evil often triumphs. Played by a cast of 15 actors in 86 roles, this musical rendition of the play features an original gypsy-jazz/klezmer score by John Schott. “The Caucasian Chalk Circle” runs from October 6-15. Shows are 8 p.m. on October 6, 7, 13, 14, and 2 p.m. on October 8 and 15. For Tickets contact Ticketweb at 601-8932 or at www.ticketweb.com
