This darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill's raucous musical broadcast comes to life from the stage of the National Theatre.
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 excited about a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter failed to return home last night and chaos is about to ensue. Contains scenes of a sexual nature, violence and filthy language.
