American Apocalypse Now
In American Apocalypse Now, The Onion Club curate and re-imagine a collection of iconic songs which offer multiple lenses into the dark flip side of the American Dream, woven with comedy, spoken word and agit prop theatre and selected original material from their ‘kitchen collaboration’. From the ridiculous to the sublime, from the shameful to the soulful, The Onion Club go boldly into the heart of darkness in this first chapter of their American Dystopian Songbook.
American Apocalypse Now will be at the Edinburgh Festival fringe throughout August 2018.
New for 2019 - The Threat of Peace
Another dark and dystopian cabaret from those masters of Cabaret Noir, The Onion Club, this time dealing with theme of the rise of fascism and the question of who really profits from war, economic crisis, social conflict and global chaos. A suite of exceptional songs interspersed with comedy and poetry adroitly performed by singer/performance artist Pauline M. Hynd and Pianist/composer Stephen Lee. This piece is currently in development, further details to be published in due course. The finished piece will be 60 minutes long and available to book from April 2019.
