WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"A rapturous daze is the condition you find yourself in after an evening with Kathleen Turner." – Washington Post
Tough-as-nails matriarch Mother Courage (Kathleen Turner) profits off the very war that steals her children from her one by one. But will the cost of war be higher than she's prepared to pay? Artistic Director Molly Smith helms this unique in-the-round staging of Brecht's powerhouse anti-war play fusing politics, satire and raucous music into an epic theatrical experience.
Featuring an all-star cast, including: Rick Foucheux (Ah, Wilderness!), Meg Gillentine (Damn Yankees), Nehal Joshi (The Music Man), Nicholas Rodriguez (Oklahoma!), Erin Weaver (Xanadu).
