Mother Courage and her Children


Trap Door Theatre’s Mother Courage and her Children has been extended for 2 weeks through March 9th!

Mother Courage becomes a parasite of war as she, hell bent on her own survival, celebrates the Thirty Years War as the source of her prosperity. Considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, wartime virtues become fatal to their possessors in this stark, anti-capitalist, and music filled play.

Resident Director Max Truax returns to direct this epic play, having previously tackled Brecht’s iconic work with his adaptations of Round Heads and Pointed Heads and The Mother.

Runs: 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Run Time: Approximately 110 minutes with no intermission.

Admission: $30

Where: Trap Door Theatre is located at 1655 W. Cortland St.
