London To Do List – 9-15 September 2013
Our fab weekly London To Do List continues, with plenty of free, cheap and offbeat treats to get you through the week!
Fresh from a UK tour, neo-cabaret wunderkinds Bourgeois & Maurice make a welcome return to Soho Theatre with their Edinburgh hit Sugartits.
Covering everything from erotic tax returns and the joys of phone hacking to eco-nightmares and the traumas of Twitter, the award-winning musical duo present an anarchic, celebratory tribute to modern life littered with acid charm, sequins and a few really gross snacks.
Joe and Freya have it all: the job, the car, the house made of Emmental in an up-and-coming part of town. Sure, they have the odd disagreement over the best way to make fondue – but they’re living the dream, more or less.
Then one morning, the cheese runs out. There’s no explanation and someone seems to have changed the rules overnight. So Joe sets off on a journey through a labyrinth of cheese hole tunnels to investigate; he finds unexpected laboratories, factories, casinos – and some worrying clues that he had more to do with the cheese disappearance than he originally thought.
