The Beggar’s Opera opens Chester’s new theatre with a filthy, hilarious version of the first ever popular musical; the story of Mack the Knife.

Specially written for the opening of the venue, the ultimate riotous immorality tale is directed by Storyhouse’s artistic director, founder of the hugely popular Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre. Not one for the faint-hearted!

This is the opening show of Chester’s brand new theatre and arts centre. Prices vary with demand and are lowest for early bookings.

Adults only: contains sexual references and mature themes
