Polly (The Heartbreak Opera)

14 Feb - 15 Feb 2020
Polly_website.jpeg

A riotous adaptation of John Gay's banned sequel to The Beggar's Opera, with techno, tracksuits and palm trees.

Join us for a Valentine's burning of an 18th Century rom-com. In a tacky beach resort on a storm hit island meet jilted brides, pregnant murderers, pirates, politicians and power pop girl bands. Polly is a viciously satirical, unashamedly sexy, very funny, not-quite-musical, with songs inspired by Peaches, Britney and Nina Simone. We rip open our hearts, and give you a battle-cry, for love, for loss and for revenge.

"Horror amid the hilarity: Marie Hamilton and Stephanie Kempson’s musical John Gay adaptation hits all the right notes... Overwhelming fun" EXUENT
