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

Misty | Bush Theatre | 15 Mar-21 Apr (pictured)
“Here is the city that we live in. Notice that the city that we live in is alive. Analyse our city and you’ll find that our city even has bodily features. Our city’s organs function like any living creature. Our city is a living creature. And if you’re wise enough, you’ll know not all of us are blood cells… Some of us are viruses.” Award winning actor Arinzé Kene is the creator and performer of this journey through the inner city of London, which blends gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address.

Dying To Please You | Jacksons Lane | 15 Mar
Jacksons Lane revives its Jacksons Five season of new work, which consists of performances by five different companies, spread out over the spring months. This first one looks really interesting, if kind of sad, as it’s a devised piece exploring the humour that can be derived from death, dying and grief. The starting point is the true story of Vid Warren, diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at the age of 23. Head this way for more info.

For A Black Girl | Camden People’s Theatre | 15 Mar
I recommended this earlier this year (crikey, where did January and February go…?) when it was on at Vault Festival, but at that stage I tipped it because I thought it looked good and now I know that it actually is good, because I’ve heard from people who saw it then just how very good it was. No need to kick yourself for missing it that time around though, as here’s another opportunity to see it. Hurrah. Details here.
