Bertolt Brecht's Good Person of Setzuan

Directed by David O'Connor
Original Compositions by Pat Lamborn
Puppetry Design by Sara Outing

Shen Te has received a gift from the gods, who believe she might be the last good person left in Sezchuan. She will try and use her gift to do good for her fellow man, but that is harder said than done in a city filled with greed and people struggling to survive. A fairy tale of modern capitalism, told with an international cast from across the University, original blues music, puppets and Bertolt Brecht's classic text that asks: Are you a good person? What would you do if you were Shen Te?
