Considered by many to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century, Brecht’s seminal work brings intense consideration and reverence to the grim realities of war and the rise of fascism through the power of theatre.

Truly epic in its scope, this production combines a deeply moving examination of human frailty with a provocative call to arms for social change — one that has surely intensified in relevance in the almost 80 years since it was first staged.

Directed by SCPA graduate student Adrian Young, and starring esteemed faculty member Val Campbell with Calgary-based actor, Brian Jensen, Brecht’s masterpiece is vividly reimagined to explore the distance between those who participate in war, those who profit from it, and those who consume its drama...that is, the audience.
