QLD: Mother Courage and Her Children
The epic morality tale Mother Courage and Her Children is set to be told in a stunning new translation by Queensland Theatre Company (QTC), with leading Australian actors Ursula Yovich & David Page in the lead, supported by an all-star, all-indigenous cast. Bertolt Brecht's epic morality tale about the ravages of war is given a unique twist by QTC Artistic Director Wesley Enoch and Paula Nazarski in a dazzling new translation.
Instead of the Thirty Years' War of 1600s Europe, this near-future incarnation of the age-old story is set against the bleak backdrop of a post-apocalyptic desert where Mad Max might be at home - an Australia ravaged by devastating conflict, where life is cheap but business is still business.
In a truly marque role for any actor, Ursula Yovich is the titular canteen-wagon mistress, shrewdly driving hard bargains as she shepherds her brood of three through this unforgiving, harsh wilderness. With an all-Indigenous cast, this fresh spin on Brecht's play delicately folds in themes of land ownership, the impact of mining and the Stolen Generation.
"Mother Courage is a real highlight of Season 2013 - one which shines the light on home grown talents and is dedicated to creating theatrical moments of national importance across a world of love, art, laughter, drama, catharsis, glamour, song and adventure," said QTC Artistic Director Wesley Enoch.
