The Threepenny Opera

The Bugger's Opera by The Alchemist

'"Silly Milly, Tawdry Audrey. Hercules and Hylas. Dolly and Edna." The finger lands on a gaunt face, coyly hidden behind a huge fan. "We called him the Memsaab. Would have dressed like that all day every fucking day if they'd let him." 'Like that' was in something resembling the costume of an Afghan Begum.' Clever, multi-layered origin story for Mack the Knife during the Siege of Kandahar that makes matchwood of the fourth wall & even features a cameo from a young John Watson
