We are pleased to announce that our next big project is
Brecht in Exile: Part 2 – The Good Person of Szechwan.
January 29 – February 22, 2020.
As a company we have always described how Brecht has become like a company playwright at Irondale. His techniques have been adapted into our work alongside techniques of improvisation over the years, and still to this day. We are very passionate about keeping his work alive and enjoy creating work, when knowing that his writing allows for a connection to the audience to be created. This connection gives the audience a sense of ‘I’m talking to you’ allows the fourth wall to be broken.
After visiting Galileo last year, it only seem right in our political climate today, we explore the The Good Person of Szechwan. The play will be performed as a fable and begin to question how can you remain a good person in a corrupt world? Following the journey to find a good person to demonstrate that humanity is worth saving. And just like Brecht himself we will be setting the play in the writers room, mirroring Brecht’s Practise when he was kept in exile in the United States due to the Nazi ruling in World War 2. Wherever he would go, he would set up a room for him and his collaborators to write. During his time in exile he wrote Gaileo, Mother Courage and The Good Person of Szechwan.
