The Good Person of Szechwan

Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
“What is the cost of being good?”
Three gods search for just one honest person on earth to justify humanity’s existence.
Finding Shen Te, penniless but principled, they reward her with a life-changing amount of cash.
But starting her own business in a money-centred, unequal society, her fortune soon turns to frustration as the more kindness she shows, the more complicated life becomes.
