A Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht

Music by Kurt Weill

English Adaptation by Marc Blitzstein

Production Dates:  18-19 May 2012

Venue:  The Roses Theatre

Adjudication

Brecht's masterpiece is as current today as it was when it was written. This production continues the aims of "Epic Theatre" in a way that would make the author proud, by turning the spectator into an observer and arousing their capacity for action.
