SHP Presents "The Good Person of Setzuan"

Campbell Performing Arts Center - Campbell PAC - Auditorium
Brecht's parable of good and evil was first performed in 1943 and remains one of his most popular and frequently produced plays worldwide. This unique bilingual edition allows students to compare the original German text with a translation by one of the world's leading playwrights, Tony Kushner. Three gods come to earth hoping to discover one truly good person. No one can be found until they meet Shen Te, a prostitute with a heart of gold. Rewarded by the gods, she gives up her profession and buys a tobacco shop, but finds it is impossible to be a good person in a corrupt world without the support of her ruthless alter ego, Shui Ta.
