The Good Person of Szechwan

By Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Addie Gorlin '19

“Your original order to be good, while yet surviving, split me like lightning into two people.”

When Shen Teh, a prostitute, is rewarded a small fortune from the gods for her kind deeds, she quickly finds that with her newfound wealth come challenges. Troubled by this revelation, Shen Teh decides the only way to succeed in this society is to create a hardened male alter ego to advocate for herself. Suddenly, she must navigate her fortune as both male and female, while trying to decide just what it means to be a good person – no matter what your gender.  Join this female-dominated conversation to explore the facets of toxic masculinity in one of Bertolt Brecht’s most popular and darkly comedic parables.
