Mayor Goodman has been assassinated, contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and they plan to escape to a better world – but they aren’t going anywhere! Not if pickled pilchard tycoon Les Peachum and his wife have anything to do with it. Before the day is out Macheath will face the hangman’s noose and much more besides…
For the first time, this brilliantly crafted script by Carl Grose and extraordinary musical score by Charles Hazlewood, which in their own words “combines trip hop and folk, renaissance polyphony and psychedelia, ska, grime and dubstep…plundering the sounds of our times” is coming to Blackpool! In the hands of The Electric Sunshine Project Community Theatre Company (aka Th’ESPs), you know that you’re in for a fabulous, fun and incomparable theatrical experience.
Full of grotesque characters, big company set- pieces and puppetry, costumes and props born from the darkest imaginations of our creative team…this show is set to be an immersion into a world that you won’t be able to forget – no matter how hard you try!”
