About the Play:

Pangea World Theater’s take on Brecht’s classic, Mother Courage, 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. The play will feature a diverse ensemble of 15 members.
