MOTHER COURAGE by Bertolt Brecht is one of the most iconic plays of our time. And with the world at war, I am interested to see how this play written in 1939 resonates.

Trap Door Theater is tiny, with an excellent reputation for doing great European drama in intense storefront theater style..

The central character Mother Courage becomes a parasite of war as she, hell-bent on her own survival, celebrates the Thirty Years War as the source of her prosperity. Considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, wartime virtues become fatal to their possessors in this stark, anti-capitalist, and music-filled play.
