And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

COMEDY: James Acaster – Represent | Udderbelly | 13 Jun (pictured)
James Acaster will be hanging around the Udderbelly on the Southbank this evening being funny. It is his job. And he will be on stage. And you will have to pay to see him. I should probably have been clearer about this at the offset. Details and tickets here.

THEATRE: Luna Gale | Hampstead Theatre | 13 Jun – 18 Jul
The latest play from multi award-winner Rebecca Gilman, ‘Luna Gale’ receives its premiere at the Hampstead Theatre, directed by Michael Attenborough. Caroline Cox has been working in The Department of Human Services. She thinks she has a typical case on her hands when she meets troubled teenagers Peter and Karlie, the parents of newborn Luna Gale. But as she digs deeper she discovers an array of unspoken motives amongst all the parties with an interest in Luna’s future. Details and tickets here.

VISUAL ART: Carsten Höller – Decision | Hayward Gallery | 10 Jun – 6 Sep
Good art makes you think, Carsten Höller’s forces you to. Interactive exhibition ‘Decision’ explores perception and decision making, starting before you even enter by giving you a choice of two entrances. From there you’re offered the chance to take pill, the contents of which you are not told, sleep in a roaming bed, fly over Waterloo Bridge, and drop down the artists’ Isomeric Slides. Details and tickets here.
