Peachum, a purveyor of stolen goods, and his rapacious wife, are horrified to find that their only child, Polly, has married Captain Macheath, the famous highwayman. Peachum cannot bear the thought that Macheath should get control of Polly’s money and become the heir to his own fortune, so he plots to have Macheath captured and hanged.

In the end Macheath hangs and as the public object to the tragic turn of events. Macheath’s hanging is “reversed,” and the company of beggars improvise a joyful and shambolic happy ending.

What's on?
