Blood runs through the streets and a young servant girl must make a choice: save her own skin or sacrifice everything to rescue an abandoned child...
A time of terror, followed by a time of peace. Order has been restored and the Governor's Wife returns to reclaim the son she left behind. Now the choice is the judge's: who is the real mother of the forgotten child?
Rehearsals are in their final stages as KS4 and KS5 students prepare for the school production of ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’ by Bertolt Brecht. An example of Brecht's epic theatre, the play is a parable about a peasant girl who rescues a baby and becomes a better mother than its wealthy natural parents.
‘There are lots of things in the world today that resonate with Brecht’s views and arguments, questions like social justice, questions like the relationship between justice and the law, questions about the sort of society we want to live in, whether we’re satisfied with the way things are at the moment.’
