CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. 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. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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.Performers David Birrell (Macheath), Eric Potts (Mr Peachum), Robert Jackson (Tiger Brown), Richard Colvin (Gang Member), Roby Ablett (Lucy), Martina Isibor (Pirate Jenny), Samuel Martin (Gang Member/Filch), Steve Simmonds (Gang Member), Natasha Lewis (Gang Member).
