The Good Person of Szechwan

By Bertolt Brecht

Tel Aviv University
Tel Aviv, Israel


The Good Person of Szechuan is kind to three homeless strangers, taking them in when no one else would despite her own poverty. After the strangers reveal themselves to be gods, they reward Shen Te for her altruism with a small tobacco shop – an opportunity to turn her life around. But soon the shop is overrun with mooching townsfolk all wanting their piece. Too sweet to defend herself and her assets, Shen Te develops an alter-ego – her pushy male ‘cousin’, Shui Ta. As ethics dissolve, goodness is defiled and wickedness rewarded.
The production was performed at the Tel Aviv University with live music, composed by Shai Ben Jacob.
