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

Michael Morpurgo’s King Arthur | Pleasance Theatre | 14 Oct
This is one from my pet children’s theatre company Story Pocket Theatre, undoubted TW favourites. We loved this show when we saw it in Edinburgh a couple of years ago, and therefore highly recommend it. It’s definitely one for your older kids, though, as the story (as you might expect from King Arthur) is too involved and nuanced for toddler types. I’d say maybe eight years plus. See this page here for info.

Grace Notes | King’s Head Theatre | 14+21 Oct (pictured)
“Grace Miller is a talented pianist. She is also a convicted killer. With uncertain memories threatening to sabotage her rehabilitation, will she be able to play again?” This one woman show, written and performed by Becky Williams, promises to be powerful and gripping. Click here for details.

The Secret Keeper by Angela Clerkin | Ovalhouse | 11-21 Oct
Described as a personal story with global consequences, this play focusing on secrets, collusions and responsibility comes from a brilliant creative team so I have every confidence that it will be really good. It’s a political fairytale, about a woman who becomes a confidante for a whole town, learning everyone’s secrets – but what will happen when a murderer confesses their crime? Head this way to book your tickets.
