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.

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. Running time 3hrs 10mins inclu. intervalPerformers Fiona Shaw (Mother Courage), Anthony Mark Barrow, William J Cassidy, Johannes Flaschberger, Stephen Kennedy (chaplain), Jonathan Gunthorpe, Stephen Kennedy, Youssef Kerkour, Martin Marquez, Louis McKenzie, Lyle McPhail, Siobhan McSweeney, Harry Melling, eleanor Montgomery, Stephen O'Toole, Charlotte Randle, Guy Rhys, Clifford Samuel, Gary Sefton, Roger Sloman, Colin Stinton, Sophie Stone, Morgan Watkins, Sargon Yelda.
