Mother Courage and Her Children
28 Sep 2018 - 20 Oct 2018
Peace is bad for business.
The ‘Thirty Years War’ rages on. Whether flogging leather belts, greasy pots, bullets or her children’s lives – life for Mother Courage is reduced to a series of transactions, and escape routes.
Brecht’s timeless and epic drama about the turmoil and trauma of conflict is vividly depicted through Lee Hall’s richly textured and crisp-witted translation.
In this wholly immersive production audiences follow in the steps of Brecht’s fearless matriarch, as Mother Courage hauls her tinkering wagon of junk through crackling battlefields and bombed-out villages – echoing the modern-day refugee’s universal displacement.
Starring Pauline McLynn (Father Ted / Shameless / EastEnders) in this iconic title role, Mother Courage and Her Children will mark Red Ladder’s 50th anniversary; over five decades of presenting stories of human struggle and resounding spirit in times of stark adversity.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
£15 - £20 *A transaction fee of £2.50 will be applied to all phone and internet bookings.
