Theatre Of War
ABC2  |  November 8, 2009

In the summer of 2006, with wars raging in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lebanon, New York's Public Theatre set out to stage Tony Kushner's new translation of Bertolt Brecht's anti-war epic Mother Courage and Her Children. Meryl Streep took time out from making movies to take on the title role - which many would consider the role of a lifetime. For the first time, she allowed a camera crew to document the complete behind-the-scenes creative process from first read-throughs to dress rehearsals.
