Kneehigh with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse

Dead Dog in a Suitcase [and other love songs] by Carl Grose music by Charles Hazlewood directed by Mike Shepherd

‘Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. And so has his dog. Macheath the contract killer is dangerously on the loose. What the HELL is the world coming to?’ Following their triumphant GIAF debut in 2017 with Tristan & Yseult, Kneehigh are back with their theatrical tour–de– force Dead Dog in a Suitcase [and other love songs] based on John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. Kneehigh’s wild reinvention of this classic musical satire is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. Using their legendary mix of puppetry, physical theatre and live music, the extraordinary cast of actor–musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this timeless story of power and lies in this trail–blazing and much celebrated production.
