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 The Beggar's Opera, Kneehigh’s wild reinvention of this classic
musical satire, is 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. 

Duration: 2 hours 50mins with interval
