About Mother Courage and Her Children

Mother Courage and Her Children

Fiona Shaw returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Tony Kushner's inventive and vigorous translation of Bertolt Brecht's uncompromising masterpiece.

Mother Courage, one of the most astonishing stage creations of the twentieth century, drags her cart across the battlefields, profiteering from a war that destroys her children, one by one.

New live music by Duke Special and his band infuses this wildfire production from the team whose many international credits include Happy Days and Medea.

‘Brecht's tragedy of war is brought up to date with a bang.' Guardian

‘Fiona Shaw delivers a phenomenal performance.' Independent

‘An exciting, moving and formidable theatrical experience.' Daily Express

‘Tony Kushner's adaptation combines with Deborah Warner's staging to catch war's unpredicablility, fever, ferocity - and perverse magnetism.' The Times
