By Bertolt Brecht

Scene X

DURING THE WHOLE OF 1635 MOTHER COURAGE AND HER DAUGHTER KATTRIN TRAVEL OVER THE HIGH ROADS OF CENTRAL GERMANY, IN THE WAKE OF THE INCREASINGLY BEDRAGGLED ARMIES.

  • MC and Kattrin are pulling the cart.
  • A voice is heard singing inside a peasant's house.
  • They stop to listen to the song. The song's about how nice it is to have a house in the winter and a garden in the summer. Way to rub it in, dude.
  • MC and Kattrin listen, then trek on.
