I, Bertolt Brecht

Devised and directed by Sue Pomeroy

I, Bertolt Brecht brings together the electricity, fun, political edge and pure entertainment value of the best of Brecht’s plays, songs and poems.

The evocative music of Kurt Weill draws on the twenties Berlin cabaret scene and jazz of the thirties – Mack the Knife, the Alabama Song – songs which recording artists from Frank Sinatra to the Doors, from David Bowie to Sting have been queuing up to cover.

Bertolt Brecht led the way for modern political satire and alternative comedy and the show features hilarious scenes from The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, which ridicules Adolf Hitler, and Man Equals Man, which takes on the military might of the Army. We experience the clarity of Brecht’s grasp on the world we live in through the iconic Threepenny Opera and Mother Courage and Her Children.

Set against the turbulent times in which Brecht lived and wrote, I, Bertolt Brecht is a fascinating and powerful theatre experience.
