Olympia Dukakis to Embody Mother Courage for Shakespeare & Company
Set against the backdrop of the Thirty Years War, the play follows an artful canteen woman intent on keeping her business and family alive amid the destruction of war – and not necessarily succeeding.
The family ties extend beyond the play itself, as Dukakis' brother, Apollo Dukakis, will be a featured player in the production.
Olympia Dukakis won her Oscar for her supporting performance in Moonstruck. She was Drama Desk-nominated for her solo turn in Broadway's Rose, and has appeared Off-Broadway and regionally in numerous stage works.
