Three gods arrive on Chinese soil to make a list of the “Good Souls”.
Looking for somewhere to spend the night, they are guided by Wang, the water bearer.
Faced with general indifference, they accept the hospitality of Shen-Té, the local prostitute. Convinced that they had found their Good Soul, they leave her a little sum of money, with which she is able to buy the tobacco shop. Unfortunately the gift quickly reveals itself to be a poisoned one: Shen-Té’s shop quickly attracts the most penniless as well as the most well off who all try to squeeze her possessions out of her. Caught up in impossible moral choices our Good Soul will hesitate between the desire to do right thing and the necessity – “to save her frail craft from sinking” – to apply the law of unscrupulous capitalism.

Talking about the show
“Thanks for the all the emotions. I found what I do not always find in the theatre: emotions. Not overdone, no caricature, a beautiful touching work….the good souls. The end was perfect, any other conclusion would have been disappointing. The icing on the cake, my daughter discovered her love of theatre. A complete success, thank you. We will come back.” — Aurian Bourguignon
