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

Who Wants To Live Forever | The Albany | 18-19 Apr (pictured)
The talented Cheryl Martin is both writer and performer of this show about a life-long love for the music of iconic singer Billie Holiday, a passion for the night sky, and the tragic loss of a sibling. Expect a very stirring mixture of music, memories and anecdotes, which, despite its sad subject matter, will include moments of hope and humour. You can book your tickets right about here.

Mountains – The Dream Of Lily Kwok | Stratford Circus Arts Centre | 18-21 Apr
“Helen has grown up in the UK, but always felt a piece of her story was missing. Visiting her mother’s birthplace of Hong Kong for the first time, she is determined to find out who she really is and where she belongs. Amidst the skyscrapers and bustling streets, she meets her grandmother, Lily Kwok, and steps into her past where she discovers shocking family secrets that will change her life forever.” This sounds fantastic, see this page here for more.

Temporary | Camden People’s Theatre | 18-19 Apr
This was previously on as a work in progress at the Calm Down Dear Festival and is back as the finished article as part of the venue’s Common People working class theatre festival. It’s by the excellent Libby Liburd, who you may have seen performing her previous, acclaimed work, ‘Muvvahood’, and we are excited to see how this new show, about the rise in numbers of households in temporary accommodation, gets on. Head this way for details.
