English Lyrics: Jeremy Sams
Directed by Paul Hodgson
Directed by Everyman?s Artistic Director Paul Hodgson this contemporary translation/adaptation features a cast of 12 and a band ? provided by co-producers Bay Chamber Concerts ? of seven multi instrumentalists. The play is set in near-futuristic London on the eve of King William V?s coronation. As London scrubs up for the celebrations, the police cut deals left and right to keep the filth out of sight. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Peachum?s daughter can?t be found? and a notorious gangster is back in town.
