The beggar's opera by John Gay( Book )

29 editions published between 1968 and 1984 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Beggar's Opera is a free-wheeling, highly politicized adaptation of John Gay's well-known eighteenth-century work of the same name. The play, reminiscent of Havel's earlier Garden Party and The Memorandum, is up to his best satirical standard. Like the Brecht/Weill Threepenny Opera, Havel's play uses an underworld milieu to explore the intermingled themes of love, loyalty, and treachery."--Jacket
