Pipeline Theatre mounts Brechts parable-within-a-play with original music. In the chaos of revolution, a kitchen maid rescues an abandoned child of royal blood and protects him against all odds. Two years later, order restored, the child’s biological mother returns to reclaim him. Their case is heard by the judge–a drunk and a ruffian with a weakness for lopsided justice. Who will win the child? In this modern morality masterpiece, here brought to life with an original score, we see Brecht examine the perils–and necessity–of human goodness.
