The Good Person of Setzuan

Opens Friday: Director Wendy Knox has a fondness for the work of Bertolt Brecht, and she’s picked the playwright’s “The Good Person of Setzuan” to launch a new season of the company she founded, Frank Theatre. A timely choice for this political season, the play centers on a prostitute, Shen Te, who seeks out goodness in a world compromised by greed. Emily Grodzik stars in the show, which Knox is staging in a 70,000-square-foot former Rainbow supermarket that’s being repurposed as a found theater space. (8 p.m. Thu.-Sat., 2 p.m. Sun.
