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

An Injury | Ovalhouse | 18-22 Jul
If you are a person of taste and discernment, you probably caught a showing of Keiran Hurley’s award-winnig ‘Heads Up’, either at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, or during its run at Battersea Arts Centre earlier this year. And if you did, you will be more than interested to see this new show, written by the aforementioned Hurley, and directed by Alex Swift. I know I am. See the venue website here for details.

The Witch’s Mark | The Space | 18-22 Jul (pictured)
This show by Over The Limit is set in 1591 in Edinburgh, when the city is at the height of a witch craze, and tells the story of the falsely accused Agnes Sampson, who is awaiting her execution. Expect something visceral and haunting, the story of a woman’s resistance against the dark forces determined to destroy her; and I dare say if you are anything like me you will end up in a terrific rage about patriarchy and injustice. Bloody men. But #notallmen obv. Head to this page here for more.

Wil Greenway – The Way The City Ate The Stars | Soho Theatre | 18-19 Jul
We love Wil Greenway a lot, because he’s a brilliant and awesome storyteller, and in fact, we love him so much we’ve given him a lot of great reviews and a TW Editors Award. Naturally I don’t want you to squander any chance you may have to see him at work, especially not when our reviewer thought this particular show so marvellous. See this page here for all the info.
