Round Heads and Pointed Heads

Money Calls to Money: A Tale of Horror

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. 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.


This is an Incubator event

Incubator events showcase USQ’s emerging artists and convey a sense of raw energy and talent. Typically created as part of the artists’ learning journey, Incubator events focus on the development of ideas, skills and concepts rather than a ‘polished and finished’ product.

USQ Artsworx invites you to experience these works first hand! Bring with you an open mind and allow yourself to digest an array of exciting potential laid out in its purest form.
