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

Misanthrope | Drayton Arms Theatre | 13 Jun-8 Jul
Exchange Theatre return to the Drayton Arms Theatre for their yearly Bastille Festival, which celebrates French Theatre with performances in both English and French.  It looks like this is probably the flagship event, a production of Moliere’s most well known work, 1666 comedy of manners ‘The Misanthrope’, which promises to find “unanticipated echoes in the world today” in light of our times of ‘alternative facts’ and ‘fake news’ .To book tickets for this and for other shows, see this link here.

And The Little One Said… | Underbelly Festival | 13-18 Jun (pictured)
A solo circus piece, this one, written and performed by the award-winning Jess Love, who you may previously have witnessed via La Soiree, Circa, or Black Cat Cabaret. Expect dark clowning, dirty acrobatics and surreal sideshow feats delivered with pathos, humour, beauty and heart-warming playfulness. Sounds unmissable, so you know, don’t miss it: head this way for details.

Sarah Sky and 7 Other Guys/Submission | The Space | 13-15 Jun
This double bill from Liver and Lung Productions offers a duo of plays with highly contemporary themes. In ‘Sarah, Sky & 7 Other Guys’, we see the two named protagonists embarking on a journey of sordid sexual encounters and hilariously painful events as they attempt to find what they want, while ‘Submission’ focuses on Sameer, a young British Pakistani, who is engaged in a struggle to reconcile sexual desires with his Islamic roots and values.
