Cast: 6m., 2w. (1 girl.) Circles of Grace opens in a happy household, in a peaceful nation, just moments before the unexpected arrival of an officer of an occupying army. The officer takes command of the house and makes some very unsettling arrangements all the while preserving the veneer of civility. The family initially accepts his domination, but eventually they are moved to rebellion. Soaring speech, vivid characters and a haunting conclusion guarantee that audiences will leave the theatre disturbed, moved and wanting to talk about how peaceful people can/should respond to brute force. One int. set.
