BT: Dead Dog In A Suitcase 2022

Directed by Rob Lane
Written by Carl Grose
Music by Charles Hazlewood

Fasten your seat belts; it’s going to be one hell of a night!

Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and Mr and Mrs Peachum aren’t happy. Not one bit!
Based on The Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is bursting with wit, wonder and weirdness. An extraordinary cast of actors and musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times… by turns shocking, hilarious, heartfelt, and absurd!

Echoing Gay’s original, the live score plunders the sounds of our times. Trip hop combines with folk, Renaissance with psychedelia, ska with grime and dubstep to create a gorgeous and powerful musical mix.

What the HELL is the world coming to?
This is now, this is it
the world is poor and man’s a s***
the game is rigged, nothing’s truer
Death’s a joke and life’s a sewer!
