The Good Person of Setzuan
translated by Wendy Arons
adapted by Tony Kushner
In this masterful parable play, the Gods have decreed, “If enough good people can be found the world can stay as it is.” Unfortunately, their search reveals only one good person, Shen Te, the prostitute; however, she must give up her profession in order to remain good. With a modest gift from the gods, she opens a small business. The pressures mounts as the world of business proves increasingly challenging to her kind nature. Can Shen Te remain a good person and still survive? Only the fate of the world is at stake.
