GOOD PERSON OF SOUTH FAYETTEVILLE
IN DEVELOPMENT
comissioned by The Artist's Laboratory Theatre
4F, 1M

"Good Person of South Fayetteville" is a very loose adaptation of Bertolt Brecht's "Good Person of Szechwan" inspired inspired by transcript interviews with Fayetteville, AR residents experiencing homelessness/housing insecurity and a bit of Ozark "granny majick." This new play highlights intersecting issues in Fayetteville, AR, including housing insecurity, public transit, and poverty.
