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’.

Larger Than Live
Bookable year round, The Onion Club Larger Than Live is an eclectic selection of work which is always changing. Towards the date of the performance we curate a selection of work drawn from our extensive repertoire and link it together with comedy and spoken word to create a unique event each time. Previous events have included the work of Brel, Bowie, Brecht & Weill, Goldfrapp, Portishead and John Grant to name but some, always interwoven with original work from our ‘kitchen collaboration’.
Noir Noel (Available Nov & Dec)
A deliciously dark christmas cabaret, stylish, theatrical, whimsical , poignant, comedic, heart wrenching, naughty and bitter sweet featuring the songs of Bowie, Brel, Coward , Waits and a few surprises. Some old favourites and some new material lovingly curated and cleverly re-contextualised in true Onion Club style.
Blue Valentine (available Jan and Feb)
A bittersweet set which whines and opines, wails and weeps, laughs and lusts its ways through the vagaries of romantic love featuring the songs of Brel, Winehouse, Waits and Rodgers and Hart interwoven with original material. Blue Valentine offers a darkly romantic alternative to the usual Valentines Day fare.
