October 27, 2015–November 22, 2015
Blending elements of vaudeville, soapbox, and alehouse, Brecht’s powerhouse anti-war play features one tough-as-nails matriarch. Anna Fierling, a sly and artful entrepreneur known as Mother Courage, strives to keep her family and her business held together while war rages all around her - a war that she profits from. Shot through with satire and peppered with music and song this is an epic theatrical experience about resilience in the face of bitter struggle.
