UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.


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

Author John Gay. Director Stephanie Kempson. Author Marie Hamilton. Music Ben Osborn.
