Brecht play excites Vienna

A Bertolt Brecht play at the Volkstheater has sparked highly favourable reviews.1

The Viennese cultural institution had a turbulent start into the new season. Overshadowed by financial difficulties, “Nur Pferden gibt man den Gnadenschuss” has been slated by critics. But “Der gute Mensch von Sezuan” found almost unanimous acclaim. Penned in the late 1930s, the play is a vital part of Brecht’s oeuvre.

Reviewers lauded the effective ideas of the play’s stage designers. Claudia Sabitzer’s performance earned praise too. Having joined the Volkstheater in 2005, Sabitzer has turned into somewhat of its figurehead. She is currently also part of the cast of “Biedermann und die Brandstifter”.
