Theatrical Niche in conjunction with Arts Council England will be bringing their Spring tour of ‘The Good Person of Szechwan’ to Stamford Arts Centre.

In a world bereft of goodness, is it possible for one truly good person to survive? Theatrical Niche return by great demand after the success of Lysistrata with this epic Brechtian tale to the regions, using their signature touches of ethereal puppetry, physical theatre and object Work.

In Szechwan, the gods descend - but find that only sex worker Shen Teh will help them. In gratitude for her kindness, they shower her with riches, but as everyone around her takes all they can, how will she keep her head above water? Can Shen Teh’s unbreakable belief in the goodness of others save her, or will that ultimately drag her under?

The performance will take place at the Arts Centre on March 17 at 7.30pm. To book call 01780 763203.
