THE WOOSTER GROUP: The Mother

The Wooster Group commissions Amir ElSaffar to create an original score for Brecht's play 'The Mother,' directed by Elizabeth LeCompte.

The Wooster Group, an ensemble theater company, is creating a new stage work based on Bertolt Brecht’s play The Mother. The piece is directed by Elizabeth LeCompte with an original score by composer Amir ElSaffar. The Mother, written in 1931 during the rise of fascism in Germany, traces the path of one woman’s journey from illiteracy to revolutionary action. Over the course of the play, the mother becomes an emblem of social and political transformation. With ElSaffar, we aim to create a new music-theater work that interprets Brecht’s revolutionary play through the lens of the contemporary moment.
