WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Vitalist Theatre presents Bertold Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children. The enterprising and plucky Mother Courage confronts waste, greed, profiteering, indifference, hypocrisy, mendacity, arrogance, and catastrophic loss in her irreverent and resilient journey for survival. Throughout a seemingly endless era of war, Mother Courage doggedly follows a succession of faceless armies across the blasted terrain. She jeers and consoles, bargains and cheats. But from her improvised canteen wagon, she always supplies her hodgepodge of trinkets and wares; though, one by one, her children are lost to the very violence from which she profits.
