Audacious fringe newcomers The Onion Club take on the disintegration of the American Dream and the rise of fascism in this deliciously dark and dystopian cabaret ‘American Apocalypse Now!’ playing at Gilded Balloon, Rose St Theatre Basement, Edinburgh 1-26 Aug 11.15pm.
A collaboration between singer and performance artist Pauline M. Hynd (alias Dubiety Brown) and pianist/composer Stephen Lee, the pair bring a Weimar aesthetic to what is essentially a music performance which takes the form of an alternative American songbook interspersed with moments of Brechtian theatre, surrealist comedy, political poetry, social satire and shades of ‘punk burlesque’.
