Pangea World Theater's take on Brecht's classic, Mother Courage and Her Children, is a scathing critique of profiteering through war and misfortune. As relevant today as when it was written, Mother Courage follows a woman determined to make her living from war at any cost. Over the course of the play, she loses all three of her children to the very war from which she tried to profit.
Our production of Mother Courage features a diverse ensemble and presents a fresh perspective on this traditionally Eurocentric piece. Exposing the oft-unrecognized impacts of war on women, LGBTQ2A+, and indigenous, black, and brown bodies, we uplift these voices and empower artists to connect to their own truth in this historical text.
