“Now spring awakes, and winter dies The dead stay dead, the living rise ‘Cos if your breath and pulse ain’t gone You stagger up and carry on.”

War rages over decades, but it’s business as usual for Mother Courage. She roams the grid from one army camp to another, her ragtag offspring in tow. Boots, beer, sniff, guns – anything a soldier desires can be bought off the back of MC’s cart.

She’s determined to turn conflict into capital. But what will it cost her?

Julie Hesmondhalgh (THE ALMIGHTY SOMETIMES, WIT, BROADCHURCH) returns to the Royal Exchange as the tenacious Courage. Headlong Associate Director Amy Hodge directs Anna Jordan’s (YEN, FREAK) new adaptation that brings Brecht’s universally celebrated classic bang up to date.
