Tony Kushner on Mother Courage

Tony Kushner's new translation of Mother Courage And Her Children opens at the National Theatre tomorrow.

In The Guardian, he presents his view of the play.
Like all great plays, Mother Courage instructs; like all great plays, its instruction flashes forth from a churning, disorienting action. Clarity is intended, but the confusion is no accident. What Courage shows us will escape our judgement – but it remains infinitely available to our struggles to understand.
