With war raging all around her, Mother Courage sells food and clothing to soldiers, switching allegiance when it suits her and striving to keep her business and children alive at all costs. Bloody battlefields are her marketplace, her wagon, her stall. Her remarkable and brutal story is told through humour and song; her story is one of choices and remains a powerful reminder of human resilience and loss in times of war. An epic masterpiece of one woman's survival.Performers Julie Hesmondhalgh (Mother Courage), Rose Ayling-Ellis (Kattrin), Simeon Blake-Hall (Swiss Cheese/Ensemble), Hedydd Dylan (Yvette/Woman/Ensemble), Conor Glean (Eilif/Ensemble), Colm Gormley (Sergeant/General/Bloody Nose/Man/Ensemble), Kevin McMonagle (Minister/Ensemble), Tachia Newall (Recruiter/Armourer/Clerk/Fur Coat/Yellow1/Ensemble), Nick Pynn (Actor Musician), Guy Rhys (Chef/Ensemble).
