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

The Woman Who Gave Birth To A Goat | Camden People’s Theatre | 11-13 Jan
“From weird side effects to notoriety to medical complications, Em’s cramming a five-month pregnancy into 45 minutes. However, as odd asit may be and though many may disapprove, this is the most exciting pregnancy the world has witnessed. Even more anticipated than any royal baby.” And yes, I think it’s probably best to heed the blurb’s exhortation that says “don’t try to make any sense of this”; just expect a rather interesting and absurd comedy looking at the relationship between humans and animals. See this page here for more.

Martin Figura – DoctorZeeman’s Catastrophe Machine | Bloomsbury Studio | 11 Dec
You may remember that we interviewed Martin Figura and ran that Q&A last week. Which made it not strictly That Week in London. But I ran it then because I wanted you all to have a bit more notice of the one night only event. So, here it is, happening this week, just the once, at Bloomsbury Studio, and you can expect a lovely, poetic, experience at the hands of this award-winning-and-nominated artist. Info right here.

Unicorn Party | Camden People’s Theatre | 11-12 Dec (pictured)
Yes, there were absolutely two shows on today at the Camden People’s Theatre that I wanted to draw your attention to, and I have no shaming in featuring them both today. This one is from Nick Field, who, you may recall, werecently interviewed about a different project he was presenting withthat brilliant Rebecca Biscuit from Sh!t Theatre. Anyway, here he is with “a surrealist riot of stories, songs, music, comedy, and copious glitter” and a vision of a reimagined dystopian Britain ruled by a Unicorn Fascist regime. Head this way for details.
