Event Details
Macheath ran off to an island to f*ck Jenny Diver. Polly Peachum, his wife, stands on the shore and summons up a storm.

Join three weird women as they dance, drum, sing and slash their way through an adaptation of Polly, John Gay’s sequel to The Beggar’s Opera. Using bouffon, drag, and Berlin cabaret we present a work-in-progress showing that explores 21st Century politics and femininity through an 18th Century spyglass.

Directed by Stephanie Kempson (Score, Pulling Out), written by Marie Hamilton (The Cranes) with a score by Ben Osborn (Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears), this is a frenetic, heart-breaking look at love, loss and revenge.
