German drama ‘Caucasian Chalk Circle’ staged at ISD

Secondary level students of International School Dhaka (ISD) performed in a modern German drama ‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’ on Monday evening.

‘The Caucasian Chalk Circle’ is a play by the German modernist playwright Bertolt Brecht. The play is a parable about a peasant girl who rescues a baby and becomes a better mother than the baby’s wealthy biological parents.

“When students perform in front of a big audience, they learn to become more confident! So, it’s a great experience for the children. We hope students will learn a great deal from these events and evolve into multi-talented human beings,” said Eugene Barnaart, the Secondary Drama Teacher at ISD.

In this year’s event, more than 30 students participated in the main cast of the drama, he added.
