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

Dear Brutus | Southwark Playhouse | 29 Nov-30 Dec
“In a remote English village there are rumours of an enchanted wood. One of the inhabitants – a mysterious old man – invites eight strangers to stay. They all have something in common. When, one evening, the wood miraculously appears the guests feel compelled to enter. What happens there has the power to change their lives forever.” It’s a while, I think, since there’s been a production of this play by JM Barrie on in London, and I think you should definitely see it, especially if you think he only wrote ‘Peter Pan’.

Curtain Call | White Bear Theatre | 29 Nov-16 Dec
The tragicomic story of a once highly respectable actor, now struggling with stage fright whilst appearing in a murder-mystery in a seaside venue. And the show looks like it has a likewise highly respectable creative team involved, not least as the play was written by (and also stars) Simon Bradbury, who recently won the 2017 Liverpool Hope Playwriting award, for his comedy ‘The Last Act of Love of JB Moliere’. See the venue website here for info.

The Lost Boy Peter Pan | Pleasance Theatre | 29 Nov-3 Jan (pictured)
You know that JM Barrie we were talking about just one tip ago? Well, here he is again, this time represented by this extremely promising production of an adaptation of his most famous work, ‘Peter Pan’. You may know all about it already, if you read our recent interview with the director of the piece, Alexandra Spencer-Jones, and if you haven’t, then read it now, and then head this way to book your tickets for a lovely family outing to the show.
