This is a show about all of us. But mainly about Bourgeois & Maurice. We can't believe it - it's been 10 years since B&M opened their gorgeous gobs to our delight!

A lot can change in 10 years. 2007 was the year that Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone, Barack Obama announced his plans for Presidency, Tony Blair departed 10 Downing Street and, most importantly of all, Georgeois Bourgeois and Maurice Maurice were born.

This August B&M look back over a decade of social change in a musical retro-speculative that is part-fact, part-fiction and part-self indulgence. Picking highlights from their four albums of musical satire and social commentary, they attempt to make sense of a decade of rapid change, and work out whether they could, in fact, be to blame for it all?

Blending the line between contemporary cabaret, alternative comedy and prancing around in sequins, Bourgeois & Maurice have established themselves as one of the UK’s most subversive and innovative musical acts. They had one of the top twenty best-reviewed comedy shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2016 with How to Save the World Without Really Trying, and their work has been seen around the globe from New York to Belgrade, from a converted public toilet to the Royal Opera House.

Don’t miss this chance to celebrate the world that was, before we’re all vapourised in a nuclear war!

Featuring guest performances from some of London’s most exciting new acts.

‘B&M have worked their way up from the capital’s alt-cabaret scene to become modern day music hall stars.’
