BLACK BOX THEATRE SHOWCASES PARABLE: THE GOOD PERSON OF SETZUAN

LA CROSSE, Wis.—Brecht’s famous and provocative parable of good, evil, and capitalism, The Good Person of Setzuan, is definitely timely as it takes to the stage at the Viterbo University La Croix Black Box Theatre on Thursday through Tuesday, April 10-15.

The play begins when three gods come to earth in search of a good person and the only reasonable candidate they find is a young prostitute, Shen Te.  Shen Te tries her very best to live up to the god’s good wishes, but the shop she runs with the gods’ money lures too many over-eager neighbors and lovers.  Shen Te invents a ruthless male cousin to fend off the parasites, but is then placed on trial for abducting herself, begging the question: Can one be good and be a good capitalist?

The Good Person of Setzuan is presented by the Viterbo University Theatre Department. It will show nightly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $9.  For more information contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
