Students from years 8 to 12 will perform Bertolt Brecht�s play Mother Courage and her Children this week.
Mr Snyman said the Anzac Centenary was one of the reasons he chose the play for the school production. �I thought it was fitting during the Anzac Centenary, as one of the strongest statements against war,� he said.
�Also a Bertolt Brecht play is prescribed in the Year 11 Drama syllabus, so it is relevant to many drama students.�
Mother Courage drags her cart across the battlefields, profiteering from a war that destroys her children, one by one.
PLC Arts Captain Lucy Rossen (Year 12), who plays the role of Mother Courage, said it was a strong production to cap off her performing career at PLC.
�It is tough balancing rehearsals with Year 12, but it�s fun and it�s nice to end my time at PLC with a famous play about an important subject,� Lucy said.
Mother Courage and her Children will be staged at PLC�s Hazel Day Drama Theatre on August 13, 14 and 15 at 7pm.
