This 1931 play by renowned German Playwright Bertolt Brecht tells the tale of a profit-seeking merchant who desires to cross the Yahi Desert. The merchant’s harsh treatment of his social inferiors shows the dark underbelly of human nature, particularly in the context of the capitalist system. The play reveals the inequities between the well-off merchant and his lower-class worker, in terms of both wealth and protection under the law.
