The Good Person of Szechuan is a prostitute - poor but optimistic and generous. Through her goodwill and charity, she stands as a lone bright spot in a society that has become dark and greedy. Impressed by her righteousness, the gods reward her. From then, Shen Tei has something to lose.
Directed by celebrated avant-garde Chinese theatre-maker Meng Jinghui, Bertolt Brecht's realist parable is rich in moral complexity. As Shen Tei remains committed to upholding her values, the audience must decide whether her behaviour is justified or if it crosses the line.
