Dead Dog in a Suitcase(and other love songs)
What the HELL is the world coming to?
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 John Gay’s classic musical satire, The Beggar’s Opera, Kneehigh’s wild retelling is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. This encore performance of Kneehigh’s riotous hit sees their extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale for our times.
This is now, this is it!
The world is poor and man’s a shit!
The game is rigged, nothing’s truer!
Death’s a joke and life a sewer!
Kneehigh with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse
