In one of Brecht′s best-known works, we look in on the humble life of Shen Te, a "working girl" living a meager existence. Gods visiting in disguise are not welcomed by the citizens of Setzuan and are highly displeased until they are shown charity by a sympathetic Shen Te. The gods reward her for her hospitality and she is soon elevated out of poverty - this reward, however, does not come without a test.
