Three divinities land in corrupt and dilapidated Sichuan in search of a good person, yet they find only hunger and treachery. Eventually, they encounter the only good person there: Shen Teh. Nonetheless, this cruel world has no place for Shen, who resorts to straddling between good and evil, questioning and eroding morality and humanity. Created by the celebrated music-and-lyrics team of Leon Ko and Chris Shum with director Victor Pang. Hong Kong’s own The Good Person of Szechwan is widely acclaimed for its enchanting and original music, having garnered six major awards at the Hong Kong Drama Awards. Eight years after its last re-run, the HKRep and Actors’ Family join hands in injecting this contemporary classic with new verve.
