The Beggar's Opera - Lazarus, The Brockley Jack Studio

John Gay’s 1728 musical comedy is set deep within London’s underbelly , a frantic, dangerous and lascivious world of highwaymen, hangmen and harlots. This uncompromising exposure of moral and financial corruption comes to the stage with an original score and contemporary staging.
