The play relies heavily on narration, much of which is delivered by the chorus. Throughout the play, peasants, soldiers, government officials, merchants, servants, lawyers, and doctors are all portrayed by the chorus. By employing an amorphous, shape-shifting chorus to inhabit the many lesser roles throughout the play, Brecht crafts a commentary on the possibility of a less rigid social structure with a greater degree of social mobility.
