Columbia University Players at Book Culture :: MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHIDREN
MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN, Bertolt Brecht’s masterpiece of epic theater, is a political drama about civilization’s infatuation with war. The play tells the story of Anna Fierling, nicknamed “Mother Courage”, a traveling canteen woman trying to negotiate the demands of wartime capitalism and family. Mother Courage cannot be both a profiteer and a mother. The play explores her choice between the two.
OUR PRODUCTION features an all female cast, and asks the audience to question the relationship between performance, power, and agency. We ask whether or not autonomy can exist within performance and whether or not it can be achieved without political power. This production will use a modern translation by David Hare, and feature a newly composed score by Michael Gildin.
The performance will take place on Sunday, March 2nd at 3pm.
The full production runs
March 6 at 6:30pm
