The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts Department is pleased to present “M. Courage” Dec. 4-13 (times vary) at the Theatre Arts Main Stage on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica. Show times are 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec 4 and 11, and on Saturday, Dec. 5 and 12. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6, and on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 12 and 13.

In this game of war – based on Bertolt Brecht’s “Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder” (“Mother Courage and Her Children”) – a true business woman who sells supplies, provisions, and liquor from her canteen wagon for a vigorous profit plays the armies on both sides of the conflict. To preserve her capitalistic spirit, she will pay a heavy price. The SMC production is directed by Terrin Adair.
