I love Brecht. This year instead of looking at one of his more well known plays, we took a dive into a rarely performed play – “The Visions of Simone Machard”. The basic storyline is of a young girl in France during the Nazi occupation, who has visions of Joan of Arc, and tries to save her brother, and her country.
I cannot recommend the play highly enough. Simone is an interesting character, and those around her have counterparts in her visions.
I created this Storify to act as a study guide for “The Visions of Simone Machard”.
