The Good Soul of Szechuan written by Bertolt Brecht

Directed by Patrick Sandford

Set Designed by Faye Bradley


"An extraordinary pair of complementary sets oppose each other from each end of the elongated acting area which divides the audience into roughly equal halves, stalls & balcony on each side of the traverse stage. Faye Bradley's set designs & moving stage machinery is enhanced by the impressive sound-scape from Matt Coombes, whilst incidental music & songs by David Sawyer, superbly played by a small side-orchestra, conducted meticulously by Pamela Rudge, colour the action delightfully."

----- Arthur Duncan for

"Performed on a traverse stage in the Bristol Old Vic Studio on Faye Bradley’s brilliant industrial street set, the rambling didactic drama was given a vibrancy and energy by the students of the theatre school directed by Patrick Sandford."
