League of Chicago Theatres Musical - The Mother

About This Activity

In Tsarist Russia, a mother's concern over her son's subversive political activities entangles her in a growing labor movement. THE MOTHER follows the title character's transformation from illiterate peasant to revolutionary leader. In the fading light of the Occupy movement, Brecht's Lehrstucke shows how social reform is born from unity, and how a mother and son can be bound together through space and time by total devotion to a common cause.
