Mother Courage and Her Children
Written by Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Dipankar Mukherjee
March 15 - March 31, 2019
About the Play
Pangea World Theater’s take on Brecht’s classic, Mother Courage, is a scathing critique of profiteering through war and misfortune. As relevant today as when it was written, Mother Courage follows a woman determined to make her living from war at any cost. Over the course of the play, she loses all three of her children to the very war from which she tried to profit.
Our production of Mother Courage features a diverse ensemble, and presents a fresh perspective on this traditionally Euro-centric piece. Exposing the oft unrecognized impacts of war on women, LGBTQ2A+, and indigenous, black and brown bodies, we uplift these voices, and empower artists to connect to their own truth in this historical text.
