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

Samson and Delilah | Arcola Theatre | 16-26 Aug
More from Arcola’s excellent Grimeborn now (there are so many good things to see) and this time it’s a bold new take on Camille Saint-Saëns’ biblical epic, directed by Aylin Bozok, who won the WhatsOnStage Award for Most Promising Newcomer for her production of Pelléas et Mélisande at Grimeborn in 2013. I totally love Saint-Saëns, and I can sense this will be brilliant. Click here for more.

Dirty Tap Funk | The Bunker Theatre | 15 Aug-2 Sep
And yay, also more goodness from The Bunker’s InMotion Festival, thanks to a three week residency from Dirty.Tap.Funk. “What happens when you combine four of the most talented dancers in the U.K. with a heavy duty pop funk combo in the heat of a London summer’s night?” ponders the blurb. And yes, we are about to find out. See the venue website here for details.

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre Do Shakespeare | The Bill Murray | 16-17 Aug (pictured)
If you are in the mood to laugh your socks off, then spending a bit of time with the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre might well be in order. This act has been wowing our reviewers and their fellow audience members for years up at the old edfringe and if you haven’t ever seen them before it is totally time to put that right.
