About This Show

“Terrible is the temptation to do good!” warns Bertolt Brecht’s amiable narrator. But good is all that Grusha, the simple kitchen maid, knows. And so, in the midst of a revolution, she cannot help but come to the aid of a poor defenseless infant. Their subsequent misadventures across her war-torn country become the heart of Brecht’s playful parable, which calls into question our basic assumptions of right in a world that has gone wrong. This production boasts a new score and new songs by acclaimed singer/songwriter Duncan Sheik and is helmed by CSC Artistic Director Brian Kulick, who directed last season’s sold-out production of Brecht’s GALILEO.
