This fall Theatre In the Raw is performing the Bertolt
Brecht and Kurt Weill 1928 classic work THE THREEPENNY OPERA,
based on John Gay's The Beggar's Opera under the direction of Jay
Hamburger and music director Earle Peach! Brecht and Weill turned
to John Gay's 18th-century The Beggar's Opera to fashion this savage,
biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality.
Set in Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of
the predatory outlaw known as Mack the Knife. Through rousing song
and intricate song, The Threepenny Opera portrays a society turned
upon its head with biting critique, and mysterious characters, and
the "Raw edge" from Jay Hamburgers colourful production;
a classic work of early 20th century theatre and a landmark in musical
theatre brought to Vancouver audiences this Fall at Strathcona's The

Past Theatre In the Raw Productions
>>> Ongoing Theatre
In the Raw Work
we are always in the process of producing series of original One-Act
plays as well as considering mounting a production of a classical
theatre play or a revived musical.
Mythical Voices for Our Time Project
has turned into an ongoing five to possibly six year project: There
are many good scripts still "sitting on the back burner"
that we would like to produce in the future. Additionally we are always
looking to produce winning One-Acts from our Biennial Play Writing
Contest. These could be produced as part
of another One-Act Festival or Mini-Tour when time, venue, and finances
continuing original radio play broadcast over Vancouver Co-Op Radio
CFRO 102.7FM The Arts Rational program (Thursday nights @ 21:00-22:00)
moves forward smashingly. When the opportunity arises we manage to
produce a script with an array of bells and whistles, broadcasting
it live on air. The pieces are usually 30-40 minutes in length and
we look forward to producing more.
usually alternate new original works with classics that are not often
performed. We are currently looking at works by William Saroyan, George
S. Kaufman or Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill's great musical, The Threepenny
Opera, or a Shakespeare drama for the 2015/2016 season and beyond.
