Under cover of his south London pub, Peachum plies a successful trade in small-time scams. But his world is shattered when the charismatic villain Macheath plans not only to marry his daughter Polly, but to move into a more dangerous level of activity.

In his dynamic new piece, Nick Dear has updated John Gay's groundbreaking work to a contemporary London teeming with petty theives, gangland hoods, homeless runaways and bent coppers.
