And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Theatre Re – The Nature Of Forgetting | Shoreditch Town Hall | 18-20 Jan
This sounds rather intriguing, a piece from the excellent Theatre Re about memory, which explores the fact that forgetting is an inability to remember, not necessarily a loss of information. It’s inspired by the work of theatre director Tadeusz Kantor, recent neurobiological research and interviews with people living with dementia, and you can find out more information about it right here.
Dirty Great Love Story | Arts Theatre | 18 Jan-18 Mar
This made a massive splash up at the Edinburgh Festival a few years back, winning a Fringe First for its writers, who also performed the show. Now it’s back for its West End debut starring a new cast comprising Felix Scott and Ayesha Antoine, and it’s definitely one for these dark wintry days, a very funny and engaging play. See this page here for all the details.
The Doppel Gang | Tristan Bates Theatre | 17 Jan-11 Feb (pictured)
“As the Blitz tears through London, a group of hopeless entertainers devise a daring plan to save their theatre from closure, by masquerading as The Marx Brothers. If the audience falls for the act, their one-night performance could save the day, but is everyone playing the same game, or is there more going on behind the scenes at the crumbling old theatre than meets the eye?” Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m sold.
