it was ok

I read this play and then saw it performed in a theater production. I think this is an amazing play about a woman during war times (the 30 year war) who was willing to do anything for her children. She fought, lied, cheated and stole whatever was possible to survive.

The one thing I remember about seeing this preformed that I wasn't a fan of was the cursing. It felt like every other line a swear word was thrown in. Sometimes swearing is just swearing and isn't always needed for dramatic effect.

The plot of the story was well written and could probably be relatable to anyone who has children (especially a mother) and the ending was slightly bittersweet. (I don't want to give it away, so read it).
