The commentary from the media would have been too much for me to handle at that stage.
I loved getting to know the play and so I just thought, ‘yes, that’s a role I could one day have a go at,’” she says.Facebook App: Open links in External Browser There is a specific issue with the Facebook in-app browser intermittently making requests to websites without cookies that had previously been set.This appears to be a defect in the browser which should be addressed soon.To use this website, cookies must be enabled in your browser.To enable cookies, follow the instructions for your browser below.Brecht originally set the play in the 17 century during the Thirty Year War, but the Belvoir production has a contemporary setting.
Nevin describes Gow’s translation as “ short, sharp and to the point. The lyrics are wonderful; the songs are fantastic….. “I don’t know how to describe (the Belvoir) production but it’s a thrill to be in it so I think it will be thrilling to see.” An example of Brecht’s epic theatre, he wrote it to engage the audience intellectually rather than emotionally and apparently rewrote the role of Mother Courage when audiences sympathised too much with her.
She programmed it at STC, she says, because she considers it “a great ensemble piece. It’s arresting and gripping and entertaining and it’s a challenge for a company.
Brecht has written it in such a way that there are 12 scenes and each scene requires a complex transition, which needs to be made slick and easy.
