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

King’s Cross (Remix) | Camden People’s Theatre | 16-27 May
Acclaimed creator and performer Tom Marshman uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in eighties London, through collected first-hand memories of the King’s Cross area, which was of course a hub of LGBTQ bars, culture and communities back then. The result is a raucous depiction of a riotous time, when HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for. See this page here for info.

Prison Game | The Albany | 17-18 May (pictured)
A biographical story about how prison can define a man, developed using real life accounts of extraordinary experiences, taking a look at how institutionalisation affects people. It’s performed by Marcus Hercules, who brings to life a series of characters to tell the tale, which charts a young boy’s journey from primary school through to adulthood. Sounds excellent. See the venue website here for details.

Catch Me (Attrape Moi) | Udderbelly Festival | 17 May-9 Jul
Canadian circus troupe Flip FabriQue head to London’s Southbank, where Udderbelly’s summer Festival is in full swing. You’d be mad to miss them, as they have won so much praise around the world for their daring feats of extreme acrobatics, trampolining, and parkour. Entertaining for a wide range of ages, so it would make a great family outing. Click here for more.
