Mother Courage and Her Children – Leeds Playhouse

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.
