A programme text edition of Brecht's famous parable, this new translation by David Harrower was published to accompany the production at the Young Vic, London, in May 2008 and is based on a previously unpublished version of Brecht's play.
Three Gods are on a journey to find out if there are any good people left on earth. Only Shen Te, a good-hearted prostitute, offers them shelter. With the money they give her she opens a tobacco shop. At once everyone needs her help. Her livelihood is in danger. Worse, she is falling in love with Sun, a pilot, who is robbing her blind. Her hard hearted cousin Shui Ta arrives to protect her. Who is he and how can good people stay good in a world of poverty and cruelty?
'Brecht is the key figure of our time and all theatre today starts from or returns to his achievement.' Peter Brook

About the Author:

Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) is acknowledged as one of the great dramatists whose plays, work with the Berliner Ensemble and writing have had a considerable influence on the theatre. His landmark plays include The Threepenny Opera and, while exiled from Germany and living in the USA, such masterpieces as The Life of Galileo, Mother Courage and The Caucasian Chalk Circle.

Review:

“Brecht is the key figure of our time and all theatre today starts from or returns to his achievement.” ―Peter Brook
