Description

In this new translation of Brecht's great 1939 anti-war play 'Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder' by the distinguished Scottish poet Tom Leonard, the Thirty Years War becomes the War on Terror and Mother Courage is a working-class woman from the West of Scotland speaking in the broad, bold Glaswegian dialect. It is a play about the language of politics and the politics of language.
