Mother Courage and Her Children is, perhaps, the most fascinating play we have presented at The Rogue Theatre (and that's saying a lot). On the surface, it is a story of a woman whose tenacity and drive lead her down roads filled with prosperity and tragedy. At the same time, Brecht's voice is heard throughout the play as he questions the audience about their priorities, actions and culpability in world events. Layered onto that are intriguing songs, surprising humor, perpetual irony and a simple tale about human frailty. Please join us for this striking play and be ready to share your thoughts after the performance!

In what many regard as Brecht's masterpiece, Mother Courage profiteers from a constant state of war, as she loses her children to it one by one. Her cynical manipulation of the miseries of others robs her of her title, and at the play's end she is mother to no one. Written in a burst of energy after the invasion of Poland, it is one of our principal ruminations on the nature of war.
