The Good Person of Szechwan
Arcade Pub., 1994 - 147 Seiten
"The Good Person of Szechwan" is one of Bertolt Brecht's most popular plays. In this famous parable, long known in this country under the potentially misleading title of "The Good Woman of Sezuan, " 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.

Excellent play with a wonderful female protagonist. That the whims of the gods and the inability to be "good" and survive turn her into the more practical male counterpart for survival is fascinating to me. But she should have lost the boyfriend. Can you say "jerk?" I knew you could. Vollständige Rezension lesen
