by Ansley Valentine
December 3, 4, 5, 2020
As civil unrest sweeps across the country, an industrious businesswoman and her children are trying to make a buck. Mother C, an unscrupulous survivor of epic proportions, strikes out to make a good living in bad times. But when is the price of sacrificing one’s humanity too high? Based on Bertolt Brecht’s 20th century theatrical classic Mother Courage and Her Children, Ansley Valentine’s Mother C re-imagines a morality tale for our times.
