“Terrible is the temptation to do good!” warns Bertolt Brecht’s amiable narrator. But good is all that Grusha, the simple kitchen maid, knows. And so, in the midst of a revolution, she cannot help but come to the aid of a poor defenseless infant. Their subsequent misadventures across her war-torn country become the heart of Brecht’s playful parable, which calls into question our basic assumptions of right in a world that has gone wrong.
