WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Berkeley Repertory Theatre and La Jolla Playhouse co-produce this production of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children, directed by Obie Award-winner Lisa Peterson. The show uses David Hare's adaptation, and features a new score from composer Gina Leishman. In Mother Courage, a religious war ravages the civilized world, killing soldiers and civilians alike. Plodding along in its wake is an itinerant peddler, shadowing the destruction and selling supplies to whichever side will grease her palm. Brecht penned his anti-war epic as the Nazi war-machine rolled through Poland, but its prescient lessons, stirring songs, and surprising humor are equally relevant today.
