Mother Courage
The University of Kentucky

Taking place during the great war of religion (and what war isn’t about religion), Mother Courage presents us with a powerful example of the great sacrifice and the high personal cost of maintaining faith in the tenets of our own essential beliefs. In her unshaken belief- a belief in business and her own business acumen- (her religion if you will). Mother Courage continually meets with the heartaches and challenges that even the simple act of trying to eke out a living- presents. But a faith, held as superior, regardless of its religious orientation or its ideology, that remains unquestioned or unchallenged and that is still acted upon- is a blind faith.
