Mother Courage strives to keep her children alive by selling food and clothing to soldiers. Switching allegiance when it suits her, she uses the bloody battlefields as her marketplace and a wagon as her place of business.

An epic masterpiece of one woman's survival, Mother Courage and her Children is told with both humour and song.
