Never before performed in its entirety and based on the seminal 18th century Beggar's Opera by John Gay and Brecht and Weill's Threepenny Opera, the band present their own version of this wildly entertaining classic.

A huge inspiration to Martyn Jacques, The Tiger Lillies founder, the story is presented as a song cycle swarming with highwaymen, thieves, jailors, pimps and prostitutes - a world of greed, crime, poverty, inequality and outrageous comedy, where the politicians are just as corrupt as the lowlife below them.
