National Theatre: The Threepenny Opera
We will be showing Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s The Threepenny Opera live from the National Theatre on Thursday 22nd September at 7.00pm
Mack the Knife is back in town.
London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night and it’s all about to kick off…
This darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical is brought to you by a creative powerhouse; adapted by Simon Stephens, (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and directed by Rufus Norris, (Everyman, London Road).
With Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (Hamlet, Othello, James Bond), as Macheath alongside Rosalie Craig (As You Like It, My Family & Other Animals) as Polly Peachum and Haydn Gwynne (The Windsors, Drop the Dead Donkey) as Mrs Peachum.
Contains scenes of a sexual nature, violence and filthy language.
