The coronation is approaching, London is restless, and no-one is safe from the corrupt Mr and Mrs Peachum. But their daughter is nowhere to be found, the police are stuffing their pockets, and rumour has it that a certain crook has come home: Mack the Knife is back in town.

In the 90th year since its premiere, prepare yourself for an arresting display of grit, wit, blood, sex and politics, punctuated with Weill’s timeless score and Simon Stephens’ bold new adaptation of Brecht’s libretto.

Expect no arias in this larger-than-life production full of cynicism, fun, and anarchic choreography by University of Oxford students.

Think three cape-wearing harbingers of doom tied down by paperwork and filing cabinets. When the youngest sister loses interest, and begins to wonder what freedom might be like, ever...

  • Measure for Measure

    Tue 4 - Sat 8 Feb

    Vienna is crumbling – overrun with vice, riven with disease. The Duke, unable to cope, hands power to a deputy: the puritanical Angelo. Her solution is simple: all sex outside of marriage is to be banned. But when a young man called Claudio falls foul of her laws and is sentenced to death, he sends his sister - a nun called Isabella - to plead for him, and everything begins to unravel…....
