Mother Courage

By Bertolt Brecht, in a version by David Hare
Directed by Chris White

The opening show at Manchester School of Theatre’s outstanding new home is a contemporary version of Brecht’s classic Mother Courage by David Hare is a powerful and compelling reminder of the disasters of war. Chronicling the journey of Mother Courage and her children, as they fight to survive an interminable conflict in which there are no winners, the play is witty, wry and highly entertaining.

This production features music and singing composed by the company.

‘A superb version that bristles with paradoxes, irony, and scepticism.’ Independent on Sunday
