Is it possible to exist as a 'perfectly good' and 'consistently generous' person
considering all of the challenges one faces on a daily basis? What about when eking
out an existence in a community overrun by poverty, where you have to remain vigilant
and resourceful simply to stay alive? What if one must choose between goodness and
survival... what then?
This Spring, TAPS will be transforming Roble Studio Theater into a cabaret full of café tables and surrounded by an immersive performance of Bertolt Brecht's The Good Person of Szechwan which will vet these questions in a gymnastic and pop-up parable. We will breathe new life into our hero and prostitute, Shen Te, gifted wealth by the gods in exchange for remaining good hearted in a world where circumstances cause her neighbors to take advantage of her. A world where she must create a ruthless alter ego, as a man, to survive.
