Round Heads & Pointed Heads

  • USQ Artworx West St Darling Heights, QLD, 4350 Australia (map)

Brecht’s Round Heads and Pointed Heads is 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.

Written in 1936, the play was intended to satirise the emerging growth of Nazi power in pre-WW2 Germany and its messages and themes remain all too relevant in today’s environment.
