CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

What is currently on at Playhouse (V923)


Starts where The Beggar's Opera ends, Polly is raucous and bawdy early music opera at its best. Rollicking and impudent.

The Heartbreak Opera

Macheath ran off to an island to f*ck Jenny Diver. Polly Peachum, his wife, stands on the shore and summons up a storm. Join three weird women as they dance, drum, sing and slash their way through an adaptation of Polly, John Gay's sequel to The Beggar's Opera. Using bouffon, drag, and Berlin cabaret we present a show that explores 21st Century politics and femininity through an 18th Century spyglass.
