    Event Description

    I won't have you folk spoiling my war for me. I'm told it kills off the weak, but they're write-off in peacetime too. And war gives its people a better deal.’ War torn Europe of the Thirty Years' War. Soldiers march through desolate wastes and abandoned villages. Through this turmoil travels the conniving saleswoman, Mother Courage with her three children. Always looking to make a bargain, peddling from her canteen, she sees a business opportunity where others see destruction, not discriminating between enemy or ally. Courage’s journey explores the mechanics of war through satire, music and dark humour in this modernist piece of Epic Theatre. To commemorate the centenary of the first world war, UCD Dramsoc presents the Modernist Classic: Mother Courage and Her Children Written by: Bertolt Brecht Original music by: Emil Wingstrand CAST: Mother Courage - Moira Anne Bender Kattrin - Ariane Chabrol Eilif - Daniel Browne Swiss Cheese - Evelyn Mc Cann The Chaplain - Peter Simpson The Cook - Cian Higgins Yvette Pottier - Aoibheann Bourke The Historian - Oisin MagFhogartaigh The Sergant, & ensemble - Keith Feenan The General, & ensemble - Verna Kokkonen Peasant Woman, & ensemble - Aoibhín Ní Ghabhann The Young Peasant, & ensemble - Alice Breen O’Driscoll ORCHESTRA: Cello and Musical Director - Amy Shields Violin - Sophia Finucane Viola - Ilona Adams Piano - Chang Sun Guitar - Eoin Ó Cionna CREW: Directed by: Hugo Ekelund Creative Director: Tadhg Carey Assistant Director: Sofia Dragacevac Producer: Elijah Quinn Production Manager: Shannon Ferber Light: Ryan Fishwick Sound: Roisin Yeates Prostups: Meadhbh Barry Stage Maneger: Will Doherty VDA: Alex Fagan
