Written by the grand master of storytelling and peopled with vivid and amusing characters, this is one of the greatest plays of the last century. This Caucasian Chalk Circleis translated by award-winning writer Alistair Beaton, who also wrote the bitingly witty stage play Feelgoodand the celebrated TV dramas The Trial of Tony Blairand A Very Social Secretary. 2009 UK tour by Shared Experience: West Yorkshire Playhouse, (26 Sep-17 Oct), Richmond Theatre (20-24 Oct), Nottingham Playhouse (4-21 Nov) and the Unicorn Theatre, London (25-29 Nov).
