The Convict’s Opera
by Stephen Jeffreys
Nick Hern Books | £3.00 | RRP £8.99
A fantastic reimagining of the classic musical comedy. Relocates John Gay’s satire “The Beggar’s Opera” to a convict ship where a group of prisoners bound for Australia put on a show set in the world they’ve left behind and will never see again.
“Filled with great humour and pathos” -The Australian Stage
