The play is based on the 30 years war, Mother courage lives out of the war by selling food and war supplies out of her wagon. She has 3 children, one of them is a girl that cannot talk. the other 2 are boys. They all die at the end of the play.
The argument for the play and the production concept addresses two issues that are important both to the producers and to a potential investor. The first part of the paper should explain why it is important to do this play in this city at this time. To do this, you will want to identify some of the themes in the play and then connect them to what is going on in the current culture (whether specifically in New York, in the United States, or in the world). The second part of the paper should address your company’s ideas for the production. What time period are you planning to set it in and why? What location are you planning to set it in and why? What is your production trying to convey to the audience? The first and second parts of the paper should not feel unrelated to each other – your production concept should make it clear to the audience why you think it is important for them to see this play at this time.
