Dead Dog in a Suitcase at the Everyman Theatre

Tuesday 25 – Saturday 29 June 2019

Presented by Kneehigh with Liverpool Everyman & 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.
