Details

Bursting with infamy, intrigue, fun and romance, the classic musical comedy gets a fantastic re-imagining from director Max Stafford-Clark and writer Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine). On a ship bound for Australia, a group of convicts are ordered to put on a show set in the criminal underworld of London that they’ve left far behind, never to see again - a world packed with such larger than life characters as highwayman Macheath and his lover sweet Polly Peachum. Cue stormy seas (and stormy scenes), reluctant cross-dressing, and a musical score that combines the beautiful folk tunes of the original with hilarious reworkings of pop classics including Sailing, Those Were The Days, 500 Miles, You’re So Vain and I Fought The Law.

Performers Glenn Butcher, Amelia Cormack, Peter Cousens, Juan Jackson, Ali McGregor, Thomas Eyre, Karina Fernandez, Nicholas Goode, Brian Protheroe, Catherine Russell.
