The Good Person Of Szechwanis one of Bertolt Brecht's most popular plays. In this famous parable, long known in this country as the potentially misleading title of "The Good Woman of Szechwan," the gods come to earth in search of a thoroughly good person. They encounter Shen Teh, a good-hearted but penniless prostitute who, to muster sufficient ruthlessness to survive in an evil world, must disguise herself as a man.

Commissioned and authorized by the Brecht estate, Arcade's definitive edition of the complete dramatic work contains a newly revised translation by John Willett and an introduction by the joint editors of Brecht's collected works in English, John Willett and Ralph Manheim. The appendix provides Brecht's own notes and relevant texts as well as extensive editorial commentary on the genesis of the play.
