The Exception and the Rule | 2015 LaborFest | July 3-31

Unfortunately, the following event has been canceled due to a problem at the location.

[Canceled] LaborFest Summer Theater Night | SFStanford Summer Theatre (SST) presents Bertolt Brecht’s Exception and the Rule, directed by Rush Rehm.

The great German playwright Bertolt Brecht wrote The Exception and the Rule (1931-2) which questions what kind of ethics will a capitalist system produce?

Brecht wrote the play as a way of encouraging workers to unionize and recognize the forces they were up against. A funny, highly physical, and thought-provoking parable about wealth and exploitation, The Exception and the Rule packs a wallop, and all in 60 minutes.
