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

The Others | Camden People’s Theatre | 16 Mar
“We make the journey ourselves. But when I arrive I will take the biggest victory sh*t in a clean white toilet! Take me to my toilet. My throne. My new home… In the dusty aftermath of Brexit, Grenfell and the refugee crisis, three derelict clowns unpick their futile attempts to make an impact on the world. One has come about a room, another resumes a relentless journey and the third desperately wants some company.” Another great-sounding show from Sprint 2018, see this page here for more.

This Restless State | Ovalhouse | 14-24 March (pictured)
A one man story-telling show, created and performed by Jesse Fox, and written by Danielle Pearson, taking a look at our continent’s past present and future via three narrative strands: alone in East Berlin in 1989, Margot learns that the wall has fallen, and with it the only life she has known; in Rome in 2052, Galina waits to cast her vote in a post-war Europe wide referendum; finally, in London in 2017 Jesse’s train leaves the station, taking him back to see his childhood home for the final time. I have a great feeling about this one, head this way for details.

Matt Winning – Filibuster | Vault Festival | 16 Mar
Now, even despite my great feelings about the above two shows, I can’t help but feel sad this week because the mighty Vault Festival comes to an end in just a couple of days. Wah. But of course, it’s been a delightful beast, so we will just stop weeping and start looking forward to the next one. And of course, make sure we make the most of this last few days. One way to do that is to see brilliant and clever TW favourite Matt Winning with this show about what he knows a lot about – global warming. See the Vault website here for info.
