Book Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) Tickets

Kneehigh are wildly excited to be returning to the Lyric with their trail-blazing and much celebrated theatrical tour-de-force Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs).

Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and Mr and Mrs Peachum aren’t happy. Not one bit. 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.

Kneehigh’s extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times.

What the HELL is the world coming to? 
This is now, this is it 
The world is poor and man’s a shit 
The game is rigged, nothing’s truer 
Death’s a joke and life a sewer!
