By Bertolt Brecht. Translated by Frank McGuinness. Directed by Amy Leach.
Blood runs through the streets and the Governor's severed head is nailed to the gates of the city. A young servant girl must make a choice: save her own skin or sacrifice everything to rescue an abandoned child...
A time of terror, followed by a time of peace. Order has been restored and the Governor's Wife returns to reclaim the son she left behind. Now the choice is the judge's: who is the real mother of the forgotten child?
A bold and inventive new production of Brecht's moral masterpiece, accompanied by a live and original soundtrack.
