Good Person of Setzuan
Directed by Peter Kleinert
Musical Director Jürgen Beyer
“If a few good people can be found, who live lives worthy of human beings, then the world can stay exactly as it is.”
Good Person of Setzuan explores the notion of good and evil when three gods arrive on earth in search of one “good” person. Brecht asks if an individual’s capacity for good still exists in a world riddled with iniquity, avarice and envy. If it does, what would such a person look like? If it does not, what are the consequences for society? Translated and adapted by Wendy Arons and Tony Kushner, and directed by international guest artist Peter Kleinert, Good Person is epic theatre that will provoke and entertain in equal measure.
