The Good Person of Szechwan
by Bertolt Brecht
translated by Wendy Arons
adapted by Tony Kushner
directed by Eric Ting
In a city of “haves” and “have-nots,” can a good person stay good even as their fortunes rise? The Good Person of Szechwan is a fable for our times exploring the lengths to which one must go to keep clean in a dirty world.
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
