Our own Bea Webster is part of the cast of Mother Courage and Her Children, showing at Leeds Playhouse from Friday 28 September.
In Lee Hall’s wholly immersive production, audiences follow in the steps of Brecht’s fearless matriarch, as Mother Courage hauls her tinkering wagon of junk through crackling battlefields and bombed-out villages – echoing the modern-day refugee’s universal displacement.
Starring Pauline McLynn (Father Ted / Shameless) in Brecht’s iconic title role, Mother Courage and Her Children will mark Red Ladder’s 50th anniversary; over five decades of presenting stories of human struggle and resounding spirit in times of stark adversity.

New graduates of the BA performance in British Sign Language and English course at RCS, Bea Webster and Connor Bryson feature in an RCS production, Last Woman Left.
A community is under threat. Flood warnings have been issued and the government is urging an immediate evacuation.
But as panic rises, one woman refuses to leave. She suspects that the government isn’t telling them the truth.
Performed in a variety of languages, Last Woman Left asks us to consider who we can trust and when we should make a stand against those in authority.
Run begins 8th May.
