Rao - ' The Job '
Job or By the sweat of thy brow shalt thou fail to earn thy bread, is an
adaptation of a 1933 short story by Bertolt Brecht, interpreted through
movement, sound, text by Maya K Rao. Set in 1927, when poverty and the
oppression of the lower orders went from bad to worse, the play traces
Frau Hausmann’s desperate attempts to “be” her dead husband and retain
a job of nightwatchman, proving that courage, physical strength and presence
of mind can be shown by anybody, man or woman, who really needs a job.
