Mother Courage & Her Children
A.R.T. Season
February 9, 2001
MotherWide

With war raging all around, a desperate woman strives to keep her business and her family alive. Brecht tells the story of Mother Courage—ironically nicknamed for her less-than-heroic actions under fire—with a dazzling blend of pathos and burlesque, mocking her foolhardiness while sympathizing with her wretched plight. This epic masterpiece of struggle and survival will be given a visionary new production by the young Hungarian director János Szász.
