And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
The Castle Builder | Camden People’s Theatre | 17 Feb
TW and Kid Carpet go back a long way (well, in the sense that we have been liking his stuff for ages, we can’t claim to be mates, or anything) so when we saw that he was creating this music theatre hybrid show in collaboration with Vic Llewellyn to perform up in Edinburgh last summer, we immediately pricked up our ears. It’s back at the CPT as part of The Sick Of The Fringe season of events, see this page here for details.
Good Dog | Watford Palace Theatre | 14-18 Feb
I’m expecting great things from this one man play, written by the multi talented Arinzé Kene, and performed by promising newcomer Anton Cross, which “chronicles growing up in a multi-cultural community, and the everyday injustices that drive people to take back control”. It was written in response to the 2011 shooting in Tottenham of Mark Duggan, and examines what might have provoked and led up to those summer riots. See the venue website here for more.
Megan Ford – Feminasty | 17-18 Feb
As you might guess from the title, Megan Ford makes no bones about being an angry feminist, but it doesn’t bother me, because frankly, I am one too. The show focuses on the horrible media and the perpetuation of rape culture, and the comedian promises to “take down the patriarchy” with her bare hands and some wigs. I am totally up for that, and I bet you are too. Head this way for info.
