Mother Courage And Her Children : Blackeyed Theatre, South HIll Park Theatre Company

“They’re waging war for Almighty God and in the name of everything that’s good and lovely, but look closer, they ain’t so silly” Mother Courage

Two ideologies collide in a conflict that stretches across a continent and threatens the balance of world power. In its midst, one woman, her three children by her side, sees an opportunity to survive, a way to profit from the slaughter by selling goods to both sides. And the time is about to come when, in her quest for material gain, she must make the ultimate sacrifice.

Regarded by many as the greatest play of the 20th century and even the greatest anti-war play of all time, Mother Courage And Her Children asks fundamental questions about the effects our beliefs have on the world and the role of ideology in society and world affairs.
