    The Good Person of Szechwan

    Bertolt Brecht

    February 19-20 & 25-27, 8:00 p.m., and February 21, 3:00 p.m.
    Ransburg Auditorium
    When three gods come to earth in search of a thoroughly good person, they encounter Shen Teh, a goodhearted but penniless prostitute, who offers them shelter. Rewarded with enough money to open a tobacco shop, the “Angel of the Slums” Shen Teh soon becomes so overwhelmed by the demands of people seeking assistance that she invents a male alter ego, “Tobacco King” Shui Ta, to deal ruthlessly with the business of living in an evil world. One of Bertolt Brecht’s most celebrated works, this intercultural play blends his fascination with Chinese theatricality, German politics, and American detective novels into a fastmoving, comic consideration of Right and Wrong in the real world.
