CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE: FREE OPEN-AIR THEATRE - THE SCOOP
Thursday 3 August to Sunday 17 September 
Throughout August and into September, the Scoop will host
its most ambitious theatre programme to date including a
revival of Bertolt Brecht's play The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
Marking the 50th anniversary of Bertolt Brecht's death, the
company revisits one of his greatest works, The Caucasian
Chalk Circle. An epic tale of revolution, flight, love lost
and found, bravery and cowardice, this powerful play tackles
the fate of an innocent child, abandoned by his royal mother
and rescued by a servant girl. Performed with a newly
commissioned score by Joe Fredericks, Bertolt Brecht's life
enhancing play pulls at the heart strings and serves as a
pertinent metaphor for conflict everywhere.
