Spotlight the Arts Foundation presents a FREE dramatic reading of the “Caucasian Chalk Circle" Plaintiff wants money. Defendant wants custody. The judge wants to drink!! A Comedy! By Bertold Brecht –
Bertold Brecht, himself an exile from Nazi Germany, creates a dark but ultimately uplifitng comedy about a serving girl who sacrifices everything to save the abandoned baby, of exiled aristocrats, in the anarchic aftermath of a violent political coup. When, several years later, the child’s biological mother returns to reclaim the child in an effort to consolidate her political position, it falls to a corrupt and dissolute judge to define and defend the nature of motherhood.
This performance will take place Monday June 11 at 7:30pm at Founders Hall located behind the Calabasas Library: 200 Civic Center Way, Calabasas, CA 91302
This will include the final part of a thought-provoking three-part stage reading “What I Did During The War”, which included Shakespeare's “Henry V” and George Bernard Shaw’s “Major Barbara.”
The Spotlight the Arts Foundation was formed by a group of Calabasas residents in 2004 to promote the arts in our community. As a grass-roots local arts organization that also qualifies as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit California corporation, Spotlight produces live performances and publicizes the activities of artists and other arts organizations in the Calabasas and surrounding areas.
Spotlight the Arts solicits input from the community as to what artistic events and programs they would like to see here. We work with the residents, the artists, and the government of the City of Calabasas to promote and support opportunities for the performing and visual arts. We welcome the participation of all members of the Calabasas community in our efforts. For Information: (818) 889-2278 http://www.spotlightthearts.org/
