Mother Courage and Her Children

As the war is breaking out a woman ventures onto the street with her three children. She wants to make a profit from the war by trading with soldiers. As an anti-war play, things did not go the way the mother hoped, and the effects of war begin to set in.

‘a tingling first night…the tiny stage throbbed with life and movement in Andy Hind’s gripping production…another signal success for Druid’- Evening Herald
‘lively, fluid, absorbing and constantly entertaining, and att the same time hard, sharp and distanced … triumphantly reinforces Druid’s position as the most important theatre company in the country’- In Dublin
