ISBN 13: 9780415045483
The play is an example of Brecht's " non-Aristotelian drama ", a dramatic form intended to be staged with the methods of epic theatre. The play is a parable set in the Chinese "city of Sichuan ". This title was a play on words, since the German term for "true love" Die wahre Liebe is pronounced the same way. The theme of qualitative " goodness " which seemed so simple and obvious in the title of the play is rendered unstable by application to both genders, as Shen Teh realizes she must operate under the guise of both in order to live a good life. Brecht's interest in historical materialism is evident in the play's definition of contemporary morality and altruism in social and economic terms. Shen Teh's altruism conflicts with Shui Ta's capitalist ethos of exploitation.
Brecht's Der gute Mensch von Sezuan , will be performed on December 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the Cellar Theater in the Fine Arts building by the students of German under the direction of Dr. Katie Chapman. The play is a parable in which Brecht explores whether it is possible to be a good person in a capitalist society, among other questions into the nature of altruism, charity, love, and goodness itself. The play begins at pm on Friday and Saturday, and at pm on Sunday. The Cellar Theater is small and tickets for all three performances will very likely sell out.
