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

Holding The Man | Jack Studio | 17 Jan-4 Feb
A production of a multi-award winning adaptation about growing up gay in Australia: “Tim catches a glimpse of handsome school mate and captain of the football team, John. Their first kiss is an exciting game. Their 15 years of life together a constant battle against discrimination, separation and temptation, all set against the pivotal events that define the era they live in. But there is an enemy present that no love can conquer.” See the venue website here for details.

The Collector | Greenwich Theatre | 17-21 Jan
And here’s another award winning piece for you, inspired by writer Henry Naylor’s own experiences of a visit to Bagram Airbase in 2003, which tells a tale of murder and betrayal in occupied Iraq focusing on a local translator with liberal ideals and his fellow countryman who is a supporter of the old regime. For info and to book see this page here.

Mae Martin and friends | Soho Theatre | 17 Jan (pictured)
We love Mae Martin so much that we don’t really care who her friends are, but as it is, her friends are an utterly brilliant bunch this month: Three you’ll have heard of – Tom Allen, Lou Sanders, Aisling Bea – and one you might be less familiar with, The Sufferettes, acclaimed Canadian improv duo. This will, I confidently predict, be a goooood night. Head this way to book.
