In this adaptation of Brecht’s play by Tony Kushner, three Gods find their way to the city of Setzuan, hoping to meet followers who still live good, well intended lives. They are quickly disappointed however, when they only find one person, the prostitute Shen Teh. They reward her for her kindness with a tobacco shop, but their reward is also a test. Can she maintain her good nature beneath the shadow of the corrupt people from Setzuan? Greed, laziness, and crime quickly pollute the shop. Shen Teh’s generosity is harshly tested, and she is forced to create an alter ego, a man by the name Shui Ta, just to maintain more balance in her life.
Shui Ta is nothing like his sweet, charitable cousin………
