Moni Yakim, director Considered one of the great plays of the 20th century, Mother Courage and Her Children was written right after Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939. While responding to immediate events, Brecht set the play during the brutal Thirty Years War of 1618-1648 which engulfed almost all of Europe.
