by Bertolt Brecht
translated by John Willett
produced by Aequitas Theatre Company
The world is under the threat of fascism and war is looming ever closer.
Liberalism and socialist ties are condemned by those in power. How did we get here?
Aequitas takes Brecht’s Fear and Misery of the Third Reich and applies it to our modern global society, taking a look at the lives of average people and the reasons they comply with those in power.
Set in the near future, this piece imagines what the world might become if we continue to repeat our mistakes.
“Our task is very difficult, but it’s the greatest one there is – to free the human race from its oppressors.”
