A heartrending and gripping tale of the families we choose, filled with passion, hope and plenty of Yorkshire grit and humour.

In a divided community, our reluctant hero, Grusha, risks everything to rescue an abandoned baby and raise him as her own. When the child's aristocratic mother returns to claim him, a rogue judge devises a unique test to determine their fate and who will be the rightful mother.

Searing and celebratory, this new version of Brecht’s classic The Caucasian Chalk Circle, is adapted for this project by Chris Bush, with music by Ruth Chan.

The Doncastrian Chalk Circle sees the National Theatre join forces with the people of Doncaster as part of its Public Acts programme to create a community musical on an epic scale, featuring a cast of over 100 local performers, alongside a professional company and live band.

Presented in partnership with National Theatre Public Acts
