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 transforms 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.

Ongoing every day from May 17, 2018 through May 19, 2018.
8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
