Written by Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Tony Kushner

Directed by Maggie Lally

In this comedic parable from renowned German playwright Bertolt Brecht, three gods visit the town of Szechwan in search of a thoroughly good person. They discover the compassion of Shen Teh, a penniless prostitute who offers them shelter. The gods reward her by providing her money to open a business where she struggles to work honestly and provide for the needy. She becomes so overwhelmed by peoples’ demands that she resorts to desperate measures to deal with the difficulties of a modern life fraught with corruption.

Featuring the students of the Department of Theatre, this production includes original music and puppetry.
