See we try and help our friends here at the ol' Rorschach Blog. Got this note from Gwen the afternoon and we begin the eternal cycle of butt scratching (or it might be back scratching I was never good with cliches).
I do love me some Brecht so I think it is all kinds of exciting. Enjoy!
I think we talked about this a long time ago - would you be willing to put something up for the opening of the constellation show today?
Katie Atkinson, Yasmin might be the only rorschachites, also meghan reichelt is running sound board for this first weekend. (Editor: Yvette Ryan also.)
let me know!
THE GOOD WOMAN OF SETZUAN
by Bertolt Brecht,
directed by Allison Stockman
Performances are March 27th - April 20th. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm
Summary: Three gods descend to earth in search of one good person and discover that kindness and compassion don't pay the rent. Shen Te, a kind and generous prostitute, is driven to disguise herself as a shrewd and unethical male businessman in order to navigate the demands of love, family and hungry neighbors. Bertolt Brecht, the avant-garde father of epic drama, mixes comedy and fantasy to create an exotic world that turns out to be very close to home.
