Mother Courage and Her Children

Epic Classical Drama
Starring Kathleen Turner

by Bertolt Brecht
translated by David Hare
directed by Molly Smith
in the Fichandler Stage
JANUARY 31 - MARCH 9, 2014

Kathleen Turner returns to Arena Stage after her sold-out run of Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins to star in the mother of all roles. Tough-as-nails matriarch Mother Courage profits off the very war that steals her children from her one by one. But will the cost of war be higher than she's prepared to pay? Artistic Director Molly Smith helms this unique in-the-round staging of Brecht's powerhouse anti-war play fusing politics, satire and music into an epic theatrical experience.
