Musical satire gets a makeover

Actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through a twisted morality tale.

Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is at Manchester’s Home Theatre from September 11 to 26.

Based on The Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, the live score features trip hop combined with folk, ska with grime and dubstep to create a powerful musical mix.

The show is presented by Kneehigh with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse.
