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

A Girl And A Gun | Camden People’s Theatre | 16 Sep-3 Oct
This is part of Calm Down Dear, Camden People Theatre’s festival of feminism, which you may have heard of, especially if you read yesterday’s set of tips, which included another show from their impressive line up of events. This offering is the work of festival veteran Louise Orwin, who explores the slightly odd trope of girls with guns, and whether Jean-Luc Goddard was right when he said “All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun”. See the show listing on the CPT website here for more info and tickets.

Doc Brown | artsdepot | 17 Sep
Doc Brown’s career seems to be going pretty well, doesn’t it, what with TV appearances on shows like ‘Law and Order’ and that Russell Howard show, and that viral YouTube thing he did with Ricky Gervais…? Not sure he really needs me to tip him. But, you might need some help, if you haven’t yet been exposed to his tip top brand of hip hop comedy. Details and tickets from right about here.

And The World Goes Pop | Tate Modern | 17 Sep-24 Jan
Opening today is this fascinating-looking exhibition at Tate Modern which promises that this “is pop art, but not as you know it”. One does tend to think of it very much as a western reflection on consumer culture, but these art works come from all over the world, and show how different cultures from every part of the responded to the pop art movement. See this page here for more info.
