Luverne Seifert leads The Mother collaboration, along with composer Annie Enneking, to create a modern, rock musical, deconstructing the play to explore how it resonates with the political actions of today. Bertolt Brecht's play The Mother, set in Russia, is adapted from Gorky's world-famous novel of the same name. Brecht tells the story of a working-class mother who is drawn into the struggle for a Bolshevik revolution; in the character of Pelagea Vlassova, the mother of the title, Brecht draws a richly human figure who emerges as the single entirely positive major hero in all of Brecht's dramatic works.
