A rare outing for this slice of didactic naturalism written by Bertolt Brecht. Set in the titular camp for the unemployed and dispossessed, it focuses on a young woman and her family and demonstrates how an adherence to traditional bourgeois values undermines political progress. Charming and incisive, it proceeds to celebrate activism; the rousing score by Hanns Eisler even ends with ‘Solidarity Song.’

The screening on Wednesday 7 March features an intro by Geoff Andrew, Programmer-at-large.
