The Beggar introduces the opera. Peachum, who runs a thieves' gang and his wife worry that their daughter Polly loves dashing highwayman Captain MacHeath. Polly says she's flirting but Mrs. Peachum discovers Macheath and Polly are married, which means her earnings are his. Peachum sees a way out. He'll turn Macheath in to the law for the reward. Macheath will hang, and his widow Polly will get his property. Polly's against this plan and warns Macheath.
The gang is at the tavern. Macheath arrives, but is betrayed and taken to Newgate Prison, where the jailer, Lockit, is in league with Peachum. Lockit's very angry daughter Lucy arrives; Macheath promised he'd marry her! Macheath says he's not really married to Polly. Lucy softens. Peachum and Lockit argue. Lucy pleads for Macheath’s release, but Lockit refuses. Polly comes to visit her “husband”. Macheath plays the girls off against each other. Peachum drags Polly away. Lucy steals the keys from her father when he’s out cold. Macheath rejoins his gang.
Lockit and Peachum check their profits. Mrs. Trapes arrives. One of her “girls” owes money so she's been set to “work” with a man called “Captain.” Peachum offers to pay off the debt in exchange for re-capturing the Captain. Lucy pretends to make up with Polly, but plans to poison her. Polly doesn't drink. Macheath is dragged back into prison. Peachum asks Macheath to choose between the girls, to avoid a lawsuit after Macheath’s hanging. Macheath refuses and prepares for execution. His friends, Lucy, and Polly come to say farewell. So do four other women, each claiming to be Macheath’s wife. That's enough to make Macheath call for the hangman himself. The Player complains the opera is a tragedy, rather than a popular comedy. The Beggar changes the ending. Macheath is pardoned and marries Polly.
