The play is set in Europe during the Thirty Years’ War. Mother Courage, a canteen woman, pulls her cart with her three children (Eilif, Kattrin, and Swiss Cheese) in the wake of the army, trading with the soldiers and attempting to make profit from the war.
Not caring to whom she sells supplies or weapons, we see her travel through time (spanned over 12 scenes) and view how traditional virtues are not valued during war. This play shows the high cost of shedding such virtues under the banner of “the end justifies the means”.
This extremely difficult Bertolt Brecht play is considered to be one the greatest plays of the 20th Century and one of the greatest anti war plays of all time.
This play is done in the style of EPIC THEATER (as it was originally written). It will be presented in the PCHS Lunchroom on January 12 and 13 @ 7pm
– be prepared to be challenged as an audience. This production has some mature themes, so take care NOT to bring the little ones!
Tickets will be $5 and will taken at 630pm. The seats will be marked MC SEATS (majority of audience is standing in space) and you can start sitting down/standing in space as early as 615pm.
