Lost and Found is a re framing of the story of the highwayman MacHeath, and his gang of men, Peachum, the thieftaker, his daughter Polly and all the murky underworld of London first heard of in John Gay’s ground -breaking play ‘The Beggar’s Opera ‘and re told in Berthold Brecht’s popular ‘The Threepenny Opera’

Neither of these were actually operas but plays with songs. In John Gays 1728 work he used popular tunes of the time. in Brecht’s 1928 version the wonderful composer Kurt Weill was commissioned to write the songs.

In our retelling we use music from both versions, including Mac the Knife, Pirate Jenny, the Solomon Song and If the Heart of a Man.

We set our production in the middle of nowhere, in a shop that offers things that are Lost and Found . here a group of people, seemingly strangers to each other, meet and begin to tell the story under the aegis of the shopkeeper The Boss.

Perhaps they have all been together before, perhaps other stories have been told, This story will be told today.

All the actors share roles.
