Long before she became a Dame, Peggy Ashcroft was treading the boards on the West End in London. In the play The Good Woman of Setzuan a young prostitute, played by Peggy Ashcroft, is determined to carve out a life that is good. While at the same time avoiding being abused by those who question her goodness. Not easy to balance as a hooker. This play is also known as “The Good Soul of Szechuan” and “The Good Person of Szechwan”. No clips of the play, with Peggy in the lead, are available on-line

  1. The Good Person of Szechwan is a prostitute – Shen Te – who is implored by three traveling gods to remain good. They know she is good because she’s the only person they have found who would put them up for the night, no questions asked, and for no fee. The prostitute meets their criteria for A Good Person, and she is the only one they have found in their long travels. She asks ‘how can I remain good when everything is so expensive?’ The Gods decide to give her money to fund her continuing goodness. They go on their way. Things go wrong.
