Bertolt Brecht’s timeless story of war and peace, “Mother Courage and Her Children,” will be presented by the Department of Theatre and Film Thursday-Sunday (April 15-18). Evening performances Thursday through Saturday will begin at 8 p.m.; weekend matinees will begin at 2 p.m., in the Eva Marie Saint Theatre, located in University Hall.

In his gripping commentary, Brecht, a German poet, playwright and theatrical reformer, follows Mother Courage and her children through the landscape of war. A traveling vendor, Mother Courage sees war from all angles, profiting from and sacrificing all to the struggle. In the end, we learn that conflict is perpetual and eternal.
