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. 

Age guideline 14+

Duration: 2 hours 45mins with interval

By Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill in a new adaption by Simon Stephens
