Olympia Dukakis, who starred as Prospera this summer in Shakespeare & Company’s “The Tempest,” will return to the Lenox theater next summer in the title role of Bertolt Brecht’s “Mother Courage and Her Children,” directed by the company’s artistic director, Tony Simotes, who also helmed “The Tempest.” The cast is slated to include Dukakis’s brother, Apollo Dukakis, who played Gonzalo to her Prospera. The dates of the run and the titles of other mainstage productions are to be announced in December.
