Open Minds are at it again

Honestly, I should be on commission… actually, now there’s a thought.

I’ve just spotted the next production by Rotherham’s innovative theatre company, Open Minds. It’s Brecht’s Threepenny Opera – a retelling of John Gay’s eighteenth century Beggars’ Opera.

Brecht’s work is a dark and violent piece set in a criminal underworld where self interest is all and the nobler human emotions are completely absent. All that and the haunting songs of Kurt Weill including the classic Mack the Knife.

As the flyer says, “just the thing to chase away that Springtime optimism!”
