Abstract:The author examines how British playwright Oladipo Agboluaje's post-colonial reworking of 'Mother Courage' (2004) employs Brechtian characters and themes to comment on West African situations. Agboluaje's play interrogates issues of conflict, ethnic violence, corruption, migration, and the functioning of NGOs in war-torn Liberia and Sierra Leone. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
