The Queen is dead. Long live the King!

As the country prepares for the coronation of King Charles III, criminals, corrupt bankers and other opportunists are coming out of the woodwork to make the most of the power vacuum.

Notorious criminal Mack the Knife has secretly married Polly Peachum and her racketeer father is furious. The stage is set for a turbulent time for the police who will do anything to keep the disreputable activities of the capital’s underworld under wraps and out of sight.

The Threepenny Opera is a darkly comic and thrilling musical drama brought right up to date in this exhilarating production.
