Mother Courage and Her Children
Written by Bertolt Brecht; Translation by David Hare
Directed by Jessica Kubzansky
October 13 - November 27, 2005

In this brilliant epic tale, still terrifyingly relevant today, the indomitable Mother Courage haggles with war's vile logic.  The mad circus of war-- as a business, as an inevitability, as the crucible that cripples the human spirit-- explodes with the bold theatricality of spectacle, song, and dance, colliding to create an extravaganza of wild hilarity and heartbreak.
