Pioneering theatre company Kneehigh return to the Lyric with their trail-blazing and much celebrated show.
Mayor Goodman’s been assassinated. And so has his dog. MacHeath the contract killer is dangerously on the loose. What the hell is the world coming to?
This radical re-working of John Gay’s notorious musical satire and political comedy The Beggar’s Opera, shines a contemporary light on greed and corruption to create a twisted morality tale for our times.
Using their legendary mix of puppetry, physical theatre and live music, the extraordinary cast of actor-musicians hoot and shimmy through this timeless story of power and lies.
