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

Invisible Women – A Mini Festival | New Diorama | 19-24 Feb
A small but classy range of events brought to you by the excellent Spare Tyre, who, in their fortieth year, celebrate their roots in the feminist movement of the 1970s. The main performances are of ‘The Promise’, a new play looking at the issues surrounding assisted dying, based on true events of the 1980s in Camden, and ‘A Tree Without Leaves’, a dance piece exploring women’s identity and motherhood. There’s also a workshop for artists, and a reading from Pauline Walker. See all the details here.

Rose Matafeo – Sassy Best Friend | Soho Theatre | 19-24 Feb (pictured)
“It’s the dynamic way she expresses herself that makes her especially engaging. She doesn’t miss a beat – in more ways than one – and it is impressive to see how she has developed from her Fringe debut in 2016. A deeply funny, enchanting and exuberant comic, Matafeo is in a class of her own,” wrote our reviewer of this show. So what are you waiting for? Head this way to book.

Frankenstein | Kensington Central Library | 19, 20+22 Feb
This is an interesting looking version of the classic Gothic tale – a site specific piece developed to be performed in library spaces. Pure Expression Theatre invite you to rediscover the story through the mind of Victor Frankenstein, following the character from room to room and memory to memory, to the accompaniment of a soundscape by award-winning musician Taz Modi.
