About Show

Show Details

Age Suitability

Tickets

Bertolt Brecht's The Good Person of Szechwan is a standard of 20th-century theatre. Its creative theatrical approach, which defies conventional concepts of dramatic structure, and the fact that it uses music and song to convey the tale have all contributed to its status as a must-see. The play's ageless characters and ideas also make it a good fit for modern viewers.

The playwright Brecht uses the figure of Shen Te to explore issues of morality, good and evil, and the individual's place in a corrupt society. This play is well-known for its unique structure, which borrows from Chinese opera, and for its use of alienation methods, which force the audience to think deeply about the issues being addressed onstage.

The Story

Shen Te, a young lady in the play, is a decent and kindhearted girl who works as a prostitute to support herself financially. When the gods come to Earth in search of a virtuous person, they are so moved by Shen Te's compassion that they shower her with riches. Shen Te opens a tobacco store with her unexpected fortune and quickly becomes a successful entrepreneur, but her generosity is quickly noticed by others who want to take advantage of her. Follow Shen Te to see if she masters the distinction between goodness and evil. Book The Good Person of Szechwan tickets today!
