Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs)

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, Beggar’s Opera, Kneehigh’s extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale for our times.

Post show talk: Wed

Duration: 2 hours 50mins with interval
