NACL: Courage

August 19, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 6:00pm, repeating until August 19, 2017


NACL premieres the newly-completed Courage, an immersive walking journey inside an imagined refugee camp occupied by stilt-patrolling soldiers, and populated by a host of characters that engage the audience along the way. Courage is based on Bertolt Brecht’s 1939 anti-war classic Mother Courage and Her Children, written in response to the devastating rise of fascism in Europe. This NACL musical spectacular tells the story of a mother searching for her lost son, as she advocates for empathy and compassion in an era of fear, displacement, and crisis.

Directed by Tannis Kowalchuk, with music by Rima Fand and text by Mark Dunau and Melissa Bell, Courage is a moving theatrical experience, created and performed by a cast of 25 performers, featuring Debra Winger in the role of B. Brecht.

Following the performances of Courage in Callicoon Center, NACL will move the production to Governors Island for its New York City premiere, September 22-24 at 2 PM.
