Round Heads and Pointed Heads

October 12 7:00 pm - 7:00 pm $10

University of Southern Queensland (USQ) presents Bertolt Brecht’s Round Heads and Pointed Heads, a satirical parable, which follows the leaders of the fictitious county, Yahoo, who set their people against each other. Czuchs (round heads) and the Czichs (pointed heads) are pitted against each other as their country’s leaders attempt the all-too-familiar ‘divide and conquer’ technique. As the story progresses, the audience is given the opportunity to experience the struggles that come with balancing loyalty and material gain. Written in 1936, the play was intended to satirize the emerging growth of Nazi power in pre-WW2 Germany and its messages and themes remain all too relevant in today’s environment.
