Mother Courage and Her Children

It's every man for himself in this world riddled with bullets and corruption, but she will manage. Mother Courage cheats, scrapes, and hustles to get by and get ahead in a war that may never end, but no one's complaining. War's a profitable enterprise! Courage will drag her wagon and her children through hell if she has to and she will. That's a spoiler, but this is Brecht after all. So pull on your socks and get ready to conquer death with us in this all-female, non-binary production of Tony Kushner's new translation featuring original music by Kevin Mucchetti.
