by Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Tony Kushner

Is it possible to be good? In this rare comedy from renowned German political playwright and theorist, Bertolt Brecht, three gods visit the town of Szechwan in the hopes of finding a good person on earth. When the only person to offer them shelter is a poor prostitute, the gods grant her wealth to see if the best of humanity can maintain her goodness. The Good Person of Szechwan comes to life in a vibrant music and multimedia-infused production that will send your moral compass whirling.
