25 May: Sheeps, Russell Brand, and The Cat In The Hat
And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
CHILDREN’S SHOW: The Cat In The Hat | Greenwich Theatre | 25-27 May (pictured)
Adapted from the original Dr Seuss book by Katie Mitchell and directed by Paul Taylor-Mills and Lillie Collier, ‘The Cat In The Hat’ comes to the London stage following a UK tour. Can Sally and her brother get that cat in check before their mum comes home? It’s going to be a close call. Details and tickets here.
COMEDY: Sheeps Wembley Previews | Soho Theatre | 25-30 May
Sprightly sketch three-piece Sheeps – that’s Daran Johnson, Liam Williams, and Alastair Roberts – work on the (imaginary) premise that they’re practising ahead of a (not real) show at Wembley Stadium. So this involves them repeatedly binning and re-inventing the same aquarium-based scenario in a variety of styles, and eventually picking apart a) each other and b) the very nature of what makes good comedy. Details and tickets here.
EVENT: Russell Brand’s Trew Musings | The Proud Archivist | 25 May
Russell Brand’s Trew Musings night of readings, musings and discussions returns to The Proud Archivist in Dalston for a second series. Details and tickets here.
