An NCPA-National Theatre Live (London) Presentation
A darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical. London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr. and Mrs. Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night and it’s all about to kick off. With Olivier award-winner Rory Kinnear (Hamlet, Othello), as Macheath alongside Rosalie Craig (As You Like It) as Polly Peachum and Haydn Gwynne (The Windsors) as Mrs. Peachum. The bold, anarchic production by a creative powerhouse is adapted by Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and directed by Rufus Norris (Everyman, London Road).
