Jonathan Kent's production at the Royal National Theatre was of a new adaptation by major playwright David Hare, who focused very much on the way Mother Courage herself was the victim of a war that gradually silenced her. The production was with new settings for the songs, by Jonathan Dove.        
         
  Mother Courage is a a wily canteen woman with the Swedish Army who is determined to make her living from the war. Over the course of the play, she loses all three of her children, Swiss Cheese, Eilif, and Katrin, to the same war from which she sought to profit.
