Munnery plays cemetery

Simon Munnery is to perform a comedy show in a graveyard.

He'll be performing as The League Against Tedium at a ruined chapel in the Abney Park Cemetery, north London.

The Attention Scum show on Sunday is the finale of a weekend of events at the graveyard, including poetry, drama and a drag act, as part of the Stoke Newington Festival.

The cemetery is also the resting place of a number of Victorian music hall stars, including Champagne Charlie.

It starts at 10pm, and tickets are £5 (£3 concs)

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
