Arena Stage has announced additional casting for its 2014 production of Mother Courage and Her Children.



Rick Foucheux (Ah, Wilderness!), Meg Gillentine (Cabaret, Damn Yankees) and Nehal Joshi (Les Misérables, The Threepenny Opera) have joined the previously announced Tony nominee Kathleen Turner (High, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Nicholas Rodriguez (My Fair Lady, Oklahoma!) and Erin Weaver (The Last Five Years, Xanadu). 

The production, which will run Jan. 31, 2014-March 9, will be directed by Arena Stage artistic director Molly Smith.

According to Arena Stage, "Tough-as-nails matriarch Mother Courage profits off the very war that steals her children from her one by one. But will the cost of war be higher than she's prepared to pay? Artistic director Molly Smith helms this unique in-the-round staging of Brecht's powerhouse anti-war play fusing politics, satire and music into an epic theatrical experience."

Additional casting and a creative team will be announced at a later date. 

Tickets go on sale Sept. 20.
