WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Survival and sacrifice in a world perpetually at war are the timeless themes of Brecht's landmark theatrical epic Mother Courage and Her Children. In a dazzling display of irony and pathos, with powerful monologues and original musical interludes, this compelling work chronicles the life of an itinerant peddler who depends on war for her personal survival. Selling food and clothing from her covered wagon with the help of her two sons and a mute daughter, Mother Courage profits from the spoils of war. But at what cost? Set in the 17th century during Europe's Thirty Years' War, and written on the cusp of WWII, Brecht's masterpiece is surprisingly funny and entertaining and may echo even louder today. Tony Estrella directs.
