Mac's Friends and Associates in The Threepenny Opera

By Bertolt Brecht

Mac's Friends and Associates

Mac is in charge of a merry band of bandits with exciting nicknames like Crooked Fingers or Bob the Saw. They are mostly indistinguishable from one another, and spend a lot of time making Mac mad with their lack of manners. They also prove to be completely disloyal, refusing to visit or help out their boss when he finds himself on death row.
