By Bertolt Brecht

Audition one

Audition two

Date: 10 Jun 2024

Time: 20:00 - 22:00

As a futile, endless war engulfs Europe, Mother Courage and her children haul their cart through the devastated landscape, scraping a living as itinerant merchants to the soldiery, trying to earn enough to stay alive, and often just trying to stay alive at all.

Virtue is a handicap, rewards and punishments are arbitrary, and a war will need feeding in this blood-soaked pantomime.
