Mother Courage and Her Children
By Bertolt Brecht
Amy Seham, Director

Critics have called Mother Courage, “the greatest anti-war play of all time.” Entertaining and provocative, Brecht’s epic drama alternates comic dialogue, poignant moments, unexpected songs, and stark images to challenge audiences to look through the fog of war. Brecht wrote Mother Courage in 1939 as a response to the Nazi invasion of Poland. It is as relevant and compelling today as it was then.
