Tony Kushner’s fresh translation of Brecht’s commentary on morality and identity defies categorization as comedy or drama. How does one stay true to moral precepts without being swallowed whole by a heartless world? The kind and generous Shen Te must reach inside herself to find a creative solution.
By Bertolt Brecht, adapted by Tony Kushner
