The Good Person of Szechuan

By Bertolt Brecht, Adapted by Hywel Evans
Directed by Hywel Evans

The Good Person Of Szechuan is one of Brechts most famous and performed plays. The spelling of Szechuan however, changes depending on who you talk to and in which country you are in when talking to them...

Taken from a fable, the play tells a story which not only looks at what it is to be 'good' and 'bad', but also at the drama which lies between those two points when trying to uphold a 'meaningful human existence'.
