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

Black Is The Colour Of My Voice | King’s Head Theatre | 10+17 Sep (pictured)
The excellent Apphia Campbell has performed this show up at more than one Edinburgh Fringe to much acclaim, so it’s great to see it on at the King’s Head this month. It’s inspired by the life of Nina Simone, reflecting on the life journey of a successful jazz pianist, singer and civil rights activist. For more information see this page here.

Seven Sins | The Cockpit | 10-11 Sep
A show that was guaranteed to catch the TW eye because of its attractive format: as you might get from the title if you gave it a little thought, here we have seven short plays, each based on one of the seven deadly sins. Promises to be exciting and hilarious, and very immediate, thanks to the seating arrangements and staging techniques involved. Click here for details.

A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad | Greenwich Theatre | 10 Sep
“Guys, you don’t have to worry – this is a happy story! It is SO happy. If it were a food it would be Skittles, if it were a day it would be Friday night, if it were a person it would be a really cute puppy!” We gave this upbeat show about depression (yes) a spectacular review up in Edinburgh in August (really, read it here, it’s so glowy) and so I command as many of you as can fit into the theatre to go and see the show. Head this way to book.
