Dead Dog in a Suitcase

What the HELL is the world coming to?

Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and they plan to escape to a better world – but they aren’t going anywhere. Not if pickled pilchard tycoon Les Peachum and his wife have anything to do with it. See, they aren’t happy with their daughter marrying Macheath. Not one bit.

Before the day is out Macheath will face the hangman’s noose and much more besides. All the while, the dogs are howling, the pier is creaking, the babes are crying, the concrete is cracking and the truth won’t stay hidden for much longer…

Based on The Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, Kneehigh’s Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. An extraordinary cast of characters shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times…one that is by turns shocking, hilarious, heartfelt and absurd.
