By Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Conrad Alexandrowicz
Three gods arrive in a large manufacturing-based city in search of one good person. A young prostitute, Shen Teh, is granted a new life and the ownership of her own tobacco shop for an act of kindness to the gods. She strives to be a ”good person” in a world based on theft, deceit and corruption, where everyone takes advantage of her generosity. To avoid financial ruin, she invents Shui Ta – a shrewd, no-nonsense male cousin to protect her business interests. Set in modern-day, industrial China, Brecht’s famous play maintains its relevance as a parable on how to be a good person in an imperfect, money-centric, class-divided society.
