A darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill’s raucous musical broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre. As London's East End scrubs up for the coronation, Mr. and Mrs. Peachum gear up for a bumper day in the beggary business. Keeping tight control of the city's underground—and their daughter’s whereabouts. Contains filthy language and immoral behaviour.
The running time is approx. 3 hours, with a 20 minute intermission.
