Joe and Freya have it all: the job, the car, the house made of Emmental in an up-and-coming part of town. Sure, they have the odd disagreement over the best way to make fondue - but they're living the dream, more or less. 

Then one morning, the cheese runs out. There's no explanation and someone seems to have changed the rules overnight. So Joe sets off on a journey through a labyrinth of cheese hole tunnels to investigate; he finds unexpected laboratories, factories, casinos - and some worrying clues that he had more to do with the cheese disappearance than he originally thought.


Cheese is a humourous adventure through the twists and turns of an absurdist system which is too big to fail; a political comedy about the end of the world as we knew it, and what happens next…

Cheese will be powered by electricty generated in gyms and community centres local to the performance venue. For information on this aspect of the project, please vist the Pedalling Power microsite.
