Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and Mr and Mrs Peachum aren’t happy. Not one bit.
Based on the Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is bursting with wit, wonder and weirdness. Kneehigh’s extraordinary cast of actor-musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times.
What the HELL is the world coming to?
This is now, this is it
The world is poor.
The game is rigged, nothing’s truer
Death’s a joke and life a sewer!
