BERTOLT BRECHT'S MOTHER COURAGE


Red Ladder and West Yorkshire Playhouse will be staging Brecht's classic MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN from September 28th to October 18th, starring Pauline McLynn!

In this wholly immersive production audiences follow in the steps of Brecht’s fearless matriarch, as Mother Courage hauls her tinkering wagon of junk through crackling battlefields and bombed-out villages – echoing the modern-day refugee’s universal displacement.

Peace is bad for business. The ‘Thirty Years War’ rages on. Whether flogging leather belts, greasy pots, bullets or her children’s lives – life for Mother Courage is reduced to a series of transactions, and escape routes. Brecht’s timeless and epic drama about the turmoil and trauma of conflict is vividly depicted through Lee Hall’s richly textured and crisp-witted translation.
