Berlin, the late 1920’s… a time of decadence, despair and joie de vivre. A young Jewish composer, Kurt Weill, meets his muse, singer Lotte Lenya and falls in love. He collaborates with playwright Bertholt Brecht on what they both consider a ‘bit of a potboiler’, but the rehearsals are fraught with disaster and the production destined to fail. A creative row triggers the last minute inclusion of a hurriedly composed song and the show becomes a resounding success. As ‘Threepenny Opera’ delights audiences across Europe, a new barbarism is erupting which will force the city’s thriving artistic community to scatter and change everyone’s lives forever.
Runs Mon, 16 September, 2019 — Sat, 21 September, 2019 at Oran Mor/The Traverse.
