WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Classical Theater of Harlem presents Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children, directed by Christopher McElroen. Bertolt Brecht is universally recognized as one of the most important stage innovators in history and a giant of 20th century drama. In this play, he takes on the endless and self-perpetuating cycle of war and profit. In a series of twelve epic scenes played over the devastation of the 30-years war, Mother Courage profits from the war mercilessly, but pragmatically. Christopher McElroen's staging will make use of costumes and weaponry from multiple eras to create a sense of the timelessness of war, and the show will be performed in the energetic style that is becoming a signature of CTH productions.
