The play is a parable inspired by the Chinese play Chalk Circle.
Written at the close of World War II, the story is set in the
Caucasus mountains of Georgia, and retells the tale of King Solomon
and a child claimed by two mothers. A chalk circle is
metaphorically drawn around a society misdirected in its
priorities. Brecht's statements about class are cloaked in the
innocence of a fable that whispers insistently to the audience.
