Signature Theatre puts its own stamp on this dark masterpiece of musical theater. Written in 1928 by Bertolt Brecht, with music by Kurt Weill, The Threepenny Opera skewers capitalist society while following dashing criminal anithero Macheath as he leaves a trail of broken hearts and slashed throats throughout the London underworld. The unforgettable score's highlighted by "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny," and juiced by the jazzy sounds of '20s-era Berlin, while the innovative epic modernism of the work went on to influence the creators of acclaimed musicals like Cabaret and Urinetown.

Annie – the stay at home spinster sister – leads a dreary existence looking after her sick mother who is confined to bed. Norman, who just happens to be married to Annie’s sister (Ruth), wants to take Annie away for a wicked weekend. Annie’s brother and his wife (Reg and Sarah) show up to look after Mum while Annie’s away, not realising that she is going off with Norman. Throw in a cat traumatised by an overzealous, lovelorn vet (Tom), and you have a comic stew guaranteed to leave you gasping with helpless laughter.
The British Players present Round and Round the Garden, part three of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious trilogy, The Norman Conquests. Wit, wordplay, and general confusion run riot in this brilliant comedy, as six people who should know better run round and round a garden full of briars, nettles, and poorly constructed lawn furniture. This is a must-see for lovers of classic British fun and frolic.
Directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell
