Mother Courage And Her Children

Mother Courage And Her Children

Written by: Bertolt Brecht 

Category:  College

"When a war gives you all you earn, one day it may claim something in return!" is the warning Brecht’s iconic dramatic figure is unable/unwilling to give proper credence to. Since the play first opened in 1941 MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN has as ascended through ranks of dramatic literature, and now serves as one of the twentieth century's greatest theatrical accomplishments. The play also shines as perhaps the quintessential example of Brecht’s Epic style.

Set throughout Europe during the Thirty Years War (a religious war between protestant and catholic leaders), we witness Mother Courage, a canteen woman who sells supplies to both armies, struggle to keep her family and business alive.
