Shen Te has received a gift from the gods, who believe she might be the last good person left in Sezchuan.  She will try and use her gift to do good for her fellow man, but that is harder said than done is a city filled with greed and people struggling to survive.  A fairy tell of modern capitalism, told with an international cast from across the University, original blues music, puppets, and Bertolt Brecht's classic text that asks:  Are you a good person?  What would you do if you were Shen Te?
