The play is a parable inspired by the Chinese play Chalk Circle.

Brecht's statements about class are cloaked in the innocence of a fable that whispers insistently to the audience.

“Not happy.”

I bought this book as part of my A Level Drama & Theatre Studies course, and even the opening scene has cut out or changed words. I don't understand why anyone would cut out words from a classic play such at... More
