The Wooster Group is working on a new production of Bertolt Brecht's play with music The Mother, written in 1931 during the rise of Fascism in Germany. Wooster Group founder Elizabeth LeCompte will direct and composer Amir ElSaffar will write original music.
The story of a 60-year-old, working-class, illiterate woman who becomes a force for social change and resistance, The Mother traces a woman's journey to revolutionary consciousness.
The Wooster Group production is scheduled for production in 2020, with casting and dates still to be announced.
