The Good Person of Szechwan

California Shakespeare Theater/Berkeley

What does it take to be good in a cruel world? The Good Person of Szechwan by Bertolt Brecht directed by Eric Ting translated by Wendy Arons adapted by Tony Kushner 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.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about The Good Person of Szechwan :

The redoubtable Tony Kushner adapted this 1941 Bertolt Brecht classic about a woman (played by Francesca Fernandez McKenzie) struggling to survive and maintain moral values in a corrupt and unequal society. Original music, from hip hop to Peking Opera, by Min Kahng. Eric Ting directs. This is Cal Shakes’ first Brecht production ever. Margo Hall, Anthony Fusco and other local luminaries comprise the cast.
