Mother Courage and Her Children

An epic retelling of the Thirty Years' War is experienced through the trials of a cunning canteen operator determined to make a profit off of the war, no matter the danger to herself or her children. Considered to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, Quintessence Theatre Group will expand its definition of classic and launch its seventh season lead by Philadelphia legend Janis Dardaris as Courage.
