Our fab weekly London To Do List continues, with plenty of free, cheap and offbeat treats to get you through the week!
// Monday //
Katie O’Brien presents a preview of her first mixed character solo show – a world of loveable eccentrics including SuZanna GonZo, a Texan cruise ship entertainer who, after a life-changing incident, discovered she has a unique talent for healing people’s physical and emotional ailments; disheveled, washed up Trishelle, a philosophical drunk who claims not to know much but discusses challenging topics frankly; and Shanice Quinn, 1997 Gold Medalist Batty-bum Bootie Shaking champion!
Also featuring a guest performance by Abandoman!
// Tuesday //
The EastEnd Cabaret Club returns! Musical comedy double act EastEnd Cabaret are back home in the heart of Hackney, with their unique brand of down-and-dirty comedy, clowning and cabaret.
Expect a sneak preview of some brand-spanking-new original songs and risqué stories, plus some old favourites, as deviant diva Bernadette Byrne and half-moustachioed Victor Victoria are joined by some of the bright young things of the alternative comedy and cabaret scene.
// Wednesday //
They Say: Frolic upon meadows of music, bathe in waves of a grassy haze, recline in the high pastures of acousticity with the finest shepherds of sound. Summer’s choice purveyors of sonorous indulgence will provide the soundtrack to the skyline of London and Mother Thames. Bring pillows, brollies and a sweet-toothed ear.
// From Thursday //
Inspired by Jean Genet’s novel ‘Our Lady of the Flowers’, Of Saints and Go-Go Boys is an immersive descent into a world of misfits and sinners that honours the abject and the sacred.
They Say: In a hedonistic world decorated with cheap glamour, three outcasts search for a different kind of Sainthood through glorious self-destruction, glitter snorting and blood. Under a neon shrine to dead porn stars Divine, Darling and Our Lady of the Flowers recount the wild and spirited final chapter of their little queer family.
