-------------------------------

Welcome to The Double R Club an evening of mystery & nightmares inspired by the films of David Lynch
Expect a darkly surreal cocktail of
"Damn fine" Cabaret & Music, where
"Restless nights and uneasy dreams go with the territory..."

Think...

the finger-clicking jazz ambience of cult TV show Twin Peaks,
the absurdist monochrome machine world of Eraserhead...
From the dark underbelly of Mulholland Drive,
to the surreal small-town madness of Blue Velvet,
A dark and troubling cabaret dream from another place, all served with humour
"Black, like midnight on a moonless night…"

Your aberrant host Benjamin Louche introduces THE underground cult cabaret phenomenon.
LINEUP THIS MONTH:

BLANCHE DUBOIS

a lone refugee from tragedy is broken and falling in darkness and confusion…

COCO MALONE

songs like knives through butter, like a stranger weeping in your deepest dreams…

CURIOUS VERSES

two friends in happier times cavort at a picnic before being seduced into mystery!

MOLLY BETH MOROSSA

a thing from ‘beyond the veil’ teases you toward dark and troubling things…

THE MYSTERIOUS ‘J'

“the man behind the mask is looking for the book with the pages torn out…”

FLABBERGAST THEATRE

a lone creature in endless shadow writhes in darkness and confusion…

EM BRÛLÉE

a voice from the cellar of your heart sings of love, of loss, and of the shadows in between…

ABNORMALIK

blooded nemesis to all other nemeses, antithesis of all that is right and true!

"London can't claim too many shows with the impressive longevity and sheer depravity of the RR Club" - The Londonist
"One of the edgiest nights in the capital." - The Independent
"You may be tickled in your most shameful fancies. You may be deeply offended. But you won't look away. Mad, bad and regrettable to miss: that pretty much summarises The Double R Club." - This Is Cabaret
