Mother Courage and Her Children

Mother Courage and Her Children

By / Gan Bertolt Brecht

Revised by / Adolygwyd gan Ed Thomas
Lyrics revised by / Geiriau wediu hadolygu gan Dafydd James & Ed Thomas
Director / cyfarwyddwr John E McGrath

National Theatre Wales returns to its birthplace in the south Wales valleys for the first production in its fifth season – a bold, anarchic new version of Bertolt Brecht’s 1939 anti-war play performed in and around the Merthyr Labour Club.

Hinterland creator Ed Thomas returns to the stage to adapt, NTW artistic director John McGrath will direct and My Name is Sue composer Dafydd James will write original music, mixing Brecht’s world with the Saturday-night spirit of Merthyr.

Mother Courage has been described as the greatest play of the twentieth century. Performed by a cast of nine great Welsh actresses, in the gutsy English of the South Wales Valleys, and in the context of our own unending wars, this will be a defiantly twenty-first century version.

Time: 7.30pm (plus 1pm matinees on 14 and 21 May)
Date: 7-22 May 2015 (except Sat & Sun)
