The Good Person of Setzuan
October 9 - October 24, 2009
Three Gods come to Earth in search of a ‘good’ person. They discover the good-hearted but penniless prostitute Shen Teh, who finds that being good comes with a price. When the townspeople begin taking advantage of Shen Teh’s goodness, she is forced to develop an alter ego, Shui Ta, to deal ruthlessly with the business of living in an evil world.
