Kneehigh

Shared publicly  - 
 
Based on the Beggar's Opera, John Gay's classic musical satire, Dead Dog in a suitcase (and other love songs) is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. An extraordinary Kneehigh cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times...by turns SHOCKING, HILARIOUS, HEARTFELT and ABSURD!

Mayor Clot has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly and they plan to escape to a better world – but they aren't going anywhere. Not if pickled pilchard, hair gel and concrete 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…

A mobile app is a digital platform – like any other stage it should hold up your art, not work against it, say the Cornish company
