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

Katie Johnstone | Orange Tree Theatre | 13-20 Jul
“Katie Johnstone wants to help the town she loves. She wants to start a business that will make millions while writing poems like Alex Turner. Everyone else wants her to get a boyfriend and go work at Tesco. But Katie Johnstone isn’t like everyone else.” A new play from Luke Barnes, part of the venues Directors’ Festival 2018. See this page here for all the details.

Hive City Legacy | Roundhouse | 10-21 Jul (pictured)
A new show from the creators of the excellent and TW-Editors’ Award-winning Hot Brown Honey, featuring a range of London-based talent: “With a fresh coat of intersecting tales from a new London Town, this unapologetic, uncensored and genre defying experience brings together liberating live performance, redefined narratives and social activism to challenge, uplift, boundary break and celebrate.” Sounds brilliant, doesn’t it? Expect “a league of extraordinary Femmes of Colour in a riotous shake up embracing the unseen and the unheard”. Click here.

Anna Nicholson – Woman Of The Year | Museum Of Comedy | 12-13 Jul
Another Edinburgh preview for you now (we have recommended quite a lot of them over the last couple of weeks) and this time it’s Anna Nicholson with ‘Woman Of The Year’. It has that title not because she’s claimed it for herself, but because she’s a character comedian and the concept is that the personalities she portrays are the nominees.
