Big Fat Fringe Bribe blog 2014: Swiss Cheese

Bawsoot Theatre Company swap some cheesy craftsmanship for valuable exposure

There was a marked contrast between the last bribe we received – Gary from Leeds' ultra-minimalist Yeti Action Pack – and our most recent arrival: a painstakingly assembled cheese house. Hand-delivered by two members of Bawsoot Theatre Company, the structure was a masterclass in cheese architecture: aside from the cheddar walls and Jarlsberg roof, cocktail sticks and melted cheese were employed to hold everything together, while oatcakes provided valuable support. Heck, even the curtains were fashioned from Edam rinds. Sadly, within minutes of arriving at the List offices, the house was decimated – all that was left was de-brie.

You can catch Bawsoot's free dark comedy Swiss Cheese as it hops around three different venues this August: it's at George Next Door from 10–16 Aug (8.35pm), Three Sisters on 18 Aug (10pm) and Ghillie Dhu on 18 & 25 Aug (3.30pm).

If you'd like us to mention your show on our bribe blog (not to mention our Twitter feed and, potentially, in print), send/deliver your Big Fat Festival Bribe to:
