Founded in 2009, The Double R Club is the brainchild of Rose Thorne and Benjamin Louche, an attempt to present cabaret in a way that wasn’t wall-to-wall frivolity and that may even disturb and disquiet; perhaps conjure bad dreams?
The worlds of David Lynch seemed like the perfect catalyst.
The Double R has twice won ‘Best Ongoing Production’ at the London Cabaret Awards, as well as The Erotic Award for ‘Best Club/Event’. Additionally, Benjamin Louche won ‘Best Host’ at the 2014 London Cabaret Awards. The Double R have been closely associated with the annual Twin Peaks UK Festival since its inception in 2010.
“This evening of mystery and nightmares inspired by the films of David Lynch is a dark and twisted treat, often groping into territory where other cabaret nights fear to tread.” -Time Out
“The Double R Club is a terrifying yet addictive experience that will send you on a portentous rollercoaster and leave you begging for sweet mercy by the end! If you are looking for a frivolous, joyful evening then the Double R Club is not for you.” – 21st Century Burlesque
“London can’t claim too many shows with the impressive longevity and sheer depravity of the East End-based Double R Club.” – The Londonist
