Set in the Chinese city of Sichuan, this play by German theatre practitioner Bertolt Brecht, tells the story of Shen Te, a prostitute suddenly favored by the gods. But the more she tries to embody their morality, the more troubles fall on her head...until the sudden appearance of her cousin Shui Ta.
THE GOOD PERSON OF SZECHWAN has long been a cult staple in the theatre world. Translated for this Pushkin Theatre production by Egor Peregudov, the play regains its acute relevance in the hands of one of the most prominent contemporary directors - Yury Butusov. Musical Director Igor Gorsky fills the production with wonderful music by Paul Dessau, performed by an ensemble of soloists.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles.
