Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. And so has his dog.
Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and Mr and Mrs Peachum aren't happy. Not one bit.
Kneehigh are back with their theatrical tour-de-force Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs). Based on the Beggar's Opera, John Gay's classic musical satire, busting with wit, wonder and weirdness.
Kneehigh’s extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale for our times.
"A riot... Would I go and see this again? Like a shot."
"Fiendishly clever...a constant barrage of visual, theatrical and musical surprises"
"Madcap mastery and jukebox hijinks...Bright, bold and timeless"
“An absolute triumph!”
"Here's the surest betting: once seen, this show must be seen again... and yet again. It's that good."
“A stunning explosion of theatrical pyrotechnics”
The Morning Star
"Real theatrical magic"
