  The Good Person of Sezuan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Good Person of Sezuan, also known as The Good Woman of Setzuan, is a play by the German playwright, poet, theatre critic, and theorist Bertolt Brecht.
In English this play is often referred to as The Good Woman of Szechzwan, as it appears in the authoritative translation of the text prepared by pre-eminent Brecht scholar Eric Bentley, in which he chooses to suggest an exclusively feminine title character.
Thus the difficult theme of qualitative "goodness" (which seemed so simple and obvious in the title of the play) is rendered unstable by application to both genders, as Shen Teh realizes she must operate under the guise of both in order to live successfully and in good faith.

The Good Person of Szechwan (Sichuan) is a play that was written in 1938 by Bertolt Brecht.
This play is often referred to as "The Good Woman of Szechwan" because its main character, Shen Te, is a good and honest woman, struggling to survive in a corrupt society.
German title: "Der Gute Mensch von Sezuan." Eric Bently rendered the title "The Good Woman of Setzuan"; subsequently John Willet translated it "The Good Person of Szechwan." In the case of either translation, "Szechwan" is often "updated" to "Sichuan," to reflect the Pinyin spelling of the Chinese province.
