What is it?
Lazarus Theatre presents The Beggar’s Opera by John Gay at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre in London, from Tuesday 8th November to Saturday 3rd December.
Sexy. Shocking. Satirical.
Polly Peachum longs for her newly married husband, the roguish highwayman, Macheath. Their whirlwind romance is derailed by her parents, his lover, the law and the noose.
John Gay’s 1728 musical comedy is set deep within London’s underbelly, a frantic, dangerous and lascivious world of highwaymen, hangmen and harlots. This uncompromising exposure of moral and financial corruption comes to the stage with an original score and contemporary staging.
The Beggar’s Opera marks Lazarus Theatre’s return to The Jack Studio Theatre after their sell-out production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
