Mother Courage 

and Her Children 

by: Bertolt Brecht 

translated by: David Hare


This version of Brecht's great anti-war play is by David Hare and was premiered by the National Theatre, London, in November 1995. In this chronicle of the Thirty Years War, Mother Courage follows the armies back and forth across Europe, selling provisions and liquor from her canteen wagon. One by one she loses her children to the war but will not part with her livelihood - the wagon. The Berlin production of 1949, with Helene Weigel as Mother Courage, marked the foundation of the Berliner Ensemble.

Considered by many to be one of the greatest anti-war plays ever written and Brecht's masterpiece, it remains a powerful example of Brecht's epic theatre and pioneering theatrical style.

"A superb version that bristles with paradoxes, irony, and skepticism." - Independent on Sunday
