FVCC Theatre Presents Bertold Brecht’s “Mother Courage and Her Children”

IMG_7641Flathead Valley Community College Theatre will conclude its spring season with Bertold Brecht’s “Mother Courage and Her Children” April 24, 25 and 30 and May 1 and 2.

 

According to Eric Bentley, “Mother Courage and Her Children” is “widely considered one of the great dramatic creations of the modern stage” and “is Brecht’s most passionate and profound statement against war. Set in the seventeenth century, the play follows Anna Fierlin—Mother Courage—an itinerant trader, as she pulls her wagon of wares and her children through the blood and carnage of Europe’s religious wars. Battered by hardships, brutality and the degradation and death of the children, she ultimately finds herself left alone with the one thing in which she truly believes—her ramshackle wagon…In the enduring figure of Mother Courage, Bertolt Brecht has created one of the most extraordinary characters in literature.”
