`The Caucasian Chalk Circle, written in 1944 while he was in exile from Germany, gives some epic illumination to socialist ideas about ownership and injustice. But more than that it's a story about love winning out over endemic corruption' * Dominic Maxwell, The Times, 2.10.09 *
The play is translated, with political wit and crisp clarity, by Alistair Beaton . . . The result is a Chalk Circle which makes an unarguable case for the continued relevance both of Brecht's theatrical aesthetics and his allegorical subject matter. * Telegraph *
Alistair Beaton's sharp rhythmic translation finds a contemporary relevance too, but not intrusively so. * Stage *
