The Here And This And Now | Southwark Playhouse | 10 Jan-10 Feb
You might have seen the rather acclaimed ‘Natives’ at Southwark Playhouse back in the spring of 2017, and if you did, and you liked it, you might want to earmark this for your viewing pleasure as it’s from the same writer, Glen Waldron, former editor of i-D magazine. It tells the story of a newly recruited pharma company sales team, and tackles themes of office workplace culture and the consequences of antibiotic resistance. All the details are here.

One Festival | The Space | 9-27 Jan (pictured)
The One Festival returns, but apparently for its final year, which seems sad. But let’s look at the bright side, you can still see five different programmes of assorted, eclectic bright new work, and that’s definitely a positive. I can’t possibly list here what all the individual pieces are for each of the programmes, so I suggest you head to this page here to find out more about each of them, and to book tickets.

Tiny Dynamite | Old Red Lion Theatre | 9 Jan-3 Feb
“During their annual pilgrimage to the countryside, two childhood friends, forever bound by a terrible event from their past, encounter a beautiful stranger who couldn’t possibly exist. Threatening to uncover a truth long since buried, these friends must learn to take responsibility for their lives or risk spending the rest of them running from their guilt.” Abi Morgan’s acclaimed play gets its first professional revival in fifteen years. See this page here for all the info.
