The good person of Szechwan in the Onassis Cultural Centre

Enjoy the theatrical play The good person of Szechwan by Bertolt Brecht in the Onassis Cultural Centre from January 23, 2013 until February 10, 2013.

“How can anyone be good when everything around them is so expensive?” Brecht’s question poses a timeless moral quandary which a capable and multi-talented young director, Katerina Evangelatou, has undertaken to confront us with.

In The good person of Szechwan (written 1926-1941), the gods track down the only good person on Earth: a prostitute in the province of Szechwan in China. The gods reward the kind-hearted Shen Teh with a sizeable sum of money, but when she uses it to open a small tobacco shop, the poverty-stricken and spiteful townsfolk are enraged. 

As she prepares to face them, Shen Teh comes up with an alter ego, a supposed cousin of hers, the devious Shui Ta, and from now on, she will adopt his form whenever required. But for how long can she play this double role of victim and perpetrator?

«Shen Teh has to be played by a first-class actress. Only the most imaginative artist can play a good person”: Brecht’s primary demand seems to have been met with the casting of Stefania Goulioti in the lead role.
