In Bertolt Brecht’s “The Good Person of Setzuan” the Gods search for one good person in the town of Setzuan, a town full of corrupt, immoral citizens. In honor of Ithaca College Theatre's production of “The Good Person of Setzuan” we are searching for the good people of Ithaca, NY. Do you know of someone who loves Ithaca? Someone who works hard for the community and its residents? Do they volunteer? Do they glow with kindness? If you know someone that fits this description nominate them as “The Good Person of Ithaca, NY”!
