Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs)

Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs)

Lyric Hammersmith · 21 MAY - 15 JUN

Kneehigh are wildly excited to be returning to the Lyric with their trail-blazing and much celebrated theatrical tour-de-force

“First performed in 2014, this hugely enjoyable musical satire is back in London for two weeks. If you haven’t yet seen this wonderful show from Kneehigh, it’s well worth getting down to Hammersmith to catch this new iteration.”


Based on the Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. Kneehigh’s extraordinary cast of actor musicians shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times.

What the HELL is the world coming to?
This is now, this is it
The world is poor and man’s a shit
The game is rigged, nothing’s truer
Death’s a joke and life a sewer!

Critic reviews

Devilishly brilliant; a rich and raggedy tribute to the dark side of society
