NACL's ‘Courage' makes a lasting impression

Doug Rogers played the accordion while people gather on the grass of Apple Pond Farm, waiting for the play to begin.
CALLICOON CENTER — NACL's “Courage,” inspired by Bertolt Brecht's “Mother Courage and her Children”(said to be the greatest anti-war plays of all time), is an original play inspiring compassion in a time when people are struggling to survive in a world filled with fear and war.
The play took place at Apple Pond Farm in Callicoon Center, and had the performers interacting with the audience and leaving a profound impression.
The spectators followed performer and director Tannis Kowalchuk (who played Anna or “Mother Courage”) and her daughter throughout the farm, while being told the story of how her son disappeared while serving in the army.
The play provoked deep emotions and thoughts about the crises that are currently happening in the world and the necessity of being courageous to implement change.
