"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.

In its 80th anniversary, Brecht’s popular play is brought bang up to date in a new version by Nina Segal, directed by Anthony Lau (Anna Karenina).
