The Caucasian Chalk Circle is an amusing fairy tale set in the Georgian Caucasus about the judgements rendered by the village idiot that an invading army has installed as a magistrate as a joke.

Not too surprisingly the village idiot proves to an excellent judge during his very short term. If properly staged, the Caucasian Chalk Circle is extremely funny and offers a great evening at the theatre.

You might want to consider taking in a performance if the opportunity ever presents itself.

The Caucasian Chalk Circle Character List

Two groups of peasants want to claim a valley that was abandoned during WW II when the Germans invaded. One group used to live in the valley and herded goats there. The other group is from a neighboring valley and hopes to plant fruit trees. A Delegate has been sent to arbitrate the dispute. The fruit growers explain that they have elaborate plans to irrigate the valley and produce a tremendous amount of food. The goat-herders claim the land based on the fact that they have always lived there.
