Details

In a world run by beggars, thieves, crooks and whores the only way to survive is violence and cruelty. Criminal ringleader Macheath has secretly married the daughter of the ruler of the beggars and his many 'wives', girlfriends and whores have to decide whether they are better off with or without him. Everyone betrays everyone else as there can be no loyalty amongst the downtrodden. Macheath's seductive journey through Brecht's Threepenny underworld will highlight the gender issues and conflicts in addition to the more obvious class struggles as he attempts to skilfully sidestep the gallows.
