Mayor Clot has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly and they plan to escape to a better world - but they aren't going anywhere. Not if pickled pilchard, hair gel and concrete tycoon Les Peachum and his wife have anything to do with it. See, they aren't happy with their daughter marrying Macheath. Not one bit. Before the day is out Macheath will face the hangman's noose and much more besides. All the while, the dogs are howling, the pier is creaking, the babes are crying, the concrete is cracking and the truth won't stay hidden for much longer...Performers Rina Fatania (Mrs Peachum), Georgia Frost (Filch), James Gow (Musician and Mac's Gang), Angela Hardie (Polly Peachum), Martin Hyder (Les Peachum), Dave Johnzy (Musician and Mac's Gang), Giles King (Colin Lockit), Patrycja Kujawska, Lucy Rivers (Widow Goodman), Alex Lupo (Musician/Mayor Goodman/Mac's Gang), Dominic Marsh (Macheath), Beverly Rudd (Lucy Lockitt), Sarah Wright, Tim Dalling (Punch Puppeteer and Mac's Gang)..
