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

Arr We There Yet | Underbelly Festival | 10 Jun-1 Jul (Sundays)
“A scallywag pirate, a muscular sailor and a chef with a seafood allergy make for a hopeless crew as they fight for the title of Captain aboard the ship. These acrobatic pirates turn ship-life upside down. Walking the plank becomes the high flying teeterboard, cooking for the crew involves juggling knives and steering the ship spinning upside down in the roue cyr.” Great family show from the excellent Head First Acrobats.

A Buried Time | Roundhouse | 17 Jun
Another great looking show from The Last Word Festival. Poetry collective None Of The Above present this storytelling show about the various inhabitants of a strange street: “This street has had many names but none anyone can remember. They don’t know why the lady at 53 writes postcards to herself every day. They don’t know why the old man at 84 is digging his way to the centre of the earth from his basement. They don’t know why no one leaves and why no one ever arrives.” All the information is right about here.

This Is My Bed | Polka Theatre | 13-24 Jun
So, two family shows to choose from today, this being the second, and it’s the work of a company I am always wanting to tip and talk about, English Touring Opera. It’s performed by three singers and two players, and promises fabulous songs, characters and animation, all on the theme (perhaps unsurprisingly) of beds. In this show, it seems as though the bed develops a life of its own in order to whisk its owner off on a bit of an adventure. See the venue website here for more.
