In a world bereft of goodness, is it possible for one truly good person to survive?

Theatrical Niche re-awakens Brecht's epic tale with signature jubilance; using ethereal puppetry, physical theatre and object work.

The gods descend but find that only sex worker Shen Teh will help them.  Hidden identity, betrayal and unrequited love all stand in her way... Will Shen Teh's unbreakable belief in the goodness of others save her, or ultimately drag her under?

From the critically acclaimed team behind 'Lysistrata' and 'Blood Wedding' - Puppet Director Alice Sillett leads the production with her exquisitely crafted creations, whilst Venetia Twigg re-works Brecht’s morality play to tender enduring questions of culpability and status quo to a modern-day audience.

Brutality and kindness here collide in a spell-binding calamity of noise and colour.

Presented by Theatrical Niche Ltd

Suitable for Ages 12+
