Bertolt Brecht

Published by Methuen

One of Brecht's best loved and most performed plays - a landmark of modern theatre

Based on John Gay's eighteenth century Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera, first staged in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm in Berlin (now the home of the Berliner Ensemble), is a vicious satire on the bourgeois capitalist society of the Weimar Republic, but set in a mock-Victorian Soho

With Kurt Weill's unforgettable music - one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz to the theatre - it became a popular hit throughout the western world

"One of the greatest poets and dramatists of our century" (Observer)
