“The Good Person of Szechuan by Berltolt Brecht is a play which highlights the issues of humanity, the test of faith and hope and also makes an audience member think ‘what does it take to be a good a person?’ The play was directed by David O’Shea and, as he said during the rehearsal process, it was a beast with a beautiful message.
Playing the characters Shen Teh/Shui Ta was extremely challenging as I was a playing a woman and a man, who had different emotional heights which were constantly changing throughout the play. I found that the skills I learnt throughout my training helped me to create these contrasting characters to the best of my ability.
It was a raw and uplifting experience for me to play these challenging roles but I learnt so much from the process, the company and the director. This opportunity gave me the boost I needed in order to help me at the start of my career.”
