Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs)

2 - 4 May NST City 

By Carl Grose

Music by Charles Hazlewood

Director Mike Shepherd 


Recommended age: 14+ 

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.
