Mother Courage and Her Children

The title character, Mother Courage, travels across war-weary Europe selling alcohol, food, clothing, and supplies to soldiers on both sides. As she struggles to improve her fledgling business, Mother Courage loses her adult children, one after another. This period is during the Thirty Years' War, a conflict that pitted Protestant armies against Catholic forces and resulted in an enormous loss of life. Anna Fierling aka Mother Courage has been enduring for a long time, traveling with nothing except a supply wagon pulled along by her adult children: Eilif, Swiss Cheese, and Kattrin. Throughout the play, though she does show concern for her children, she seems more interested in profit and financial security than the safety and well-being of her offspring.
