Discover the innocent but feisty heroine Polly Peachum, her wronged rival Lucy Lockit and Macheath, their irrepressible highwayman lover, as a tangled web of lies and deceit blissfully unravels. Deep in London�s underworld, this comedy of highwaymen, hangmen and harlots is an uncompromising exposure of moral and financial corruption. 


Director Lucy Bailey injects her trademark visual dynamism into John GayÂ?s original text and The City Waites, led by Roddy and Lucy Skeaping, use authentic instruments to recreate the popular ballads and folk tunes of the time


Theatre policy relating to cancelled performances to inclement weather:


The auditorium and stage are completely uncovered. Every effort to complete the performance will be made and the theatre reserves the right to stop and start the action as necessary. Performances are never cancelled or abandoned before the advertised starting time and then only in the event of very bad weather. If cancellation or abandonment is unavoidable, ticket holders will be entitled to equivalent seats for any other performance in the main season (excludes comedy and music events), subject to availability. Original tickets for a performance that has been cancelled can be exchanged directly with the box office at the Open Air Theatre for another performance.


Refunds are not given for cancellation or abandonment as a result of the weather.
