The Year 11 Theatre cohort recently completed their extremely successful run of Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage, one of the most influential plays of the twentieth century that followed the fortune of Fierling, nick named Mother Courage, as she tries to profit from the fortunes of war. Navigating the battlefield against the Swedish army, she loses her 3 children to the very war from which she tried to profit.

The story was conveyed through both physical and verbal conventions with a perfect mix of realism and humour to keep the audience involved. It was a perfect show to see the passion and talent the Year 11 theatre cohort has for performing and it was great to see the talent of QACI in its artistic excellence.

This production was extremely exciting as not only did it include teamwork and communication with the theatre cohort, but it also incorporated the Year 11 music cohort who accepted the challenge to record and compose the music for the show. This production was an amazing opportunity for both departments to come together and collaborate on a common goal. Both music students and theatre students were able to experience what it was like to work to a brief with tight deadlines, and to collaborate with different artistic mediums which is an experience that occurs often in the professional world of the arts.

Congratulations to both the Year 11 theatre students and to the Year 11 music students on your successful collaborative production of Mother Courage and her Children. We cannot wait to see more of what we can all creatively achieve together.
