"The Good Person of Szechwan" cast

The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its Fall 2011 performance of Bertolt Brecht's timeless parable, The Good Person of Szechwan, the first production of the Falcon's Eye's fifth full season.

A young woman, who is forced into prostitution by poverty, is rewarded handsomely after opening her home to three visiting gods. By disproving the gods' contention that no goodness still exists on earth, the woman is given a small business by the gods, and from there she struggles to work honestly and to provide for the needy. After falling victim to unscrupulous neighbors and a dishonest lover, she is forced to create a fierce, manipulative, and efficient alter-ego - that of her strong-willed business-savvy male "cousin." Will the forces of capitalism overwhelm her, or will she maintain her goodness in a world of corruption?

The Good Person of Szechwan opens on Friday, October 28, and will continue through Sunday, November 13. Here is performance time and price information:
• Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm; $15 general admission, $10 students and seniors
• Sunday afternoons at 2pm; $15 general admission, $10 students and seniors.
• There are bargain-priced performances on Saturday, November 5 at 2pm and Thursday, November 10 at 8pm. All tickets are $5 FOR THESE PERFORMANCES ONLY.

To purchase tickets, go to the Three Stages website at: www.threestages.net or call 916-608-6888.
