The Good Person of Szechwan to be performed at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds
Bury Theatre Workshop will bring their version of Bertolt Brecht’s The Good Person of Szechwan to the Theatre Royal in the new year.
First performed in Britain in 1953, the jolly tale, set in south-western China, promises to be a theatre experience to remember.
The Bury Theatre Workshop has put together a large ensemble cast for the colourful production featuring songs and masks, which will take place from Tuesday, January 23, to Saturday, January 27.
After the gods come to Earth in search of a truly good person, they only find Shen Te – a kind hearted but penniless prostitute – and give her money to set up her own business.
But her goodness brings ruin and she disguises herself as a man, Shui Ta, in order to muster sufficient ruthlessness to survive.
