Polly:The Heartbreak Opera
FRIDAY 3 & SATURDAY 4 APRIL
A collaboration between Marie Hamilton and Sharp Teeth Theatre
POLLY: THE HEARTBREAK OPERA
A radical, riotous adaptation of an 18th Century rom-com - with techno, tracksuits and palm trees.
Polly, John Gay's banned sequel to The Beggar's Opera, is ripped apart in this viciously satirical, unashamedly sexy and very funny, not-quite-musical. A joyous dissection of love, loss and revenge. This is a battle cry for the broken hearted, with songs inspired by Peaches, Britney and Nina Simone.
"Horror amid the hilarity... Overwhelming fun" Exuent
