The Mother

Issue No. 2266

A mother in Tsarist Russia is drawn into political activism when she sees the state’s treatment of revolutionary workers.

She soon becomes a key figure in the struggle for workers’ power.

Bertolt Brecht’s play was first performed in 1932 to German factory workers to inspire them into political activity.

This entertaining free performance at the Scoop, an outdoor amphitheatre, brings back the spirit of the original performances.

The Mother by Bertolt Brecht at the Scoop, City Hall, London until 4 September
