"The Good Person of Szechwan" by Bertolt Brecht
7:30 p.m.
Hartung Theatre

Directed by David Lee-Painter, "The Good Person of Szechwan" by Bertolt Brecht focuses on Chinese character Shen Te, who is struggling to be a good person in an imperfect, money-centered, class-divided society in the 1930s. The play is set in the mythical village of Szechuan, China, and the actors portray Chinese characters. Rather than focusing on “slice of life” realism, the style of this play focuses on theatricality, making the audience acutely aware that they are in a theater watching actors to emphasize that the play is not real. The production also runs Saturday, April 23. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, youth, University of Idaho faculty and staff, and non-University of Idaho students. University of Idaho students may attend for free by presenting their valid student ID at the Kibbie Dome ticket office or at the door.
