Dead Dog In A Suitcase

Dead Dog In A Suitcase

Presented by Kneehigh with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse
Written by Carl Grose
Music By Charles Hazlewood
Directed by Mike Shepherd

Kneehigh returns to the Everyman Theatre by popular demand

"This is now, this is it! Life's a joke and man's a shit!"

Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. And so has his dog. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and Mr and Mrs Peachum aren't happy. Not one bit. 

Kneehigh are back with their theatrical tour-de-force Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs). Based on The Beggars Opera, John Gay's classic musical satire, Kneehigh's wild reimagining bursts with wit, wonder and weirdness. Kneehigh's extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale for our times. 

"A riot... Would I go and see this again? Like a shot." - The Times

"Madcap mastery and jukebox hijinks... Bright, bold and timeless" - The Guardian
