Mother Courage and her Children - Directed by Robert Hupp - Lights by Brian Aldous - Costumes by Margaret McKowen - Cocteau Rep - 1997
In the end…we leave not with individuals in mind, but
with an image of emptiness, signified by the black,
barren cart of Mother Courage.
On this set by Robert Klingelhoefer, it groans around
in a great circle, pushed by exhausted people; it in
turn is a cog that moves a vast mill wheel behind it,
the engine, in Brecht’s words of “ the mill of God that
grinds slow…”
