Quotes & Highlights
“John Doyle is ferociously inventive.” —New York Times
The Caucasian Chalk Circle
by Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Domenique Lozano
Directed and designed by John Doyle
Original music by Nathaniel Stookey
Visionary director John Doyle (Sweeney Todd, Company on Broadway) returns to A.C.T. to stage a spectacular new interpretation of Brecht’s masterpiece of hope, humanity, and justice. Featuring Doyle’s signature theatricality and original music from acclaimed avant-garde composer Nathaniel Stookey (The Composer Is Dead, Junkestra), this must-see production finds an intrepid company of actors creating the play from the rubble of a war-torn society. Objects turn into set pieces, discarded articles of clothing become costumes, and shrapnel is transformed into musical instruments. In this brand-new translation, The Caucasian Chalk Circle soars with humor, romance, unexpected plot twists, and high-stakes intensity.
