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

Third Wheel | Bloomsbury Theatre Studio | 19-21 Mar
“Polly and Eve are driving around the UK with their best mate Dylan in a Wizard of Oz lunchbox. At his funeral, they are handed the box along with posthumous instructions to take him on the trip he never got to go on.” Critically acclaimed feminist writing duo Mack and Salt bring this much loved show, a huge success at the most recent Edinburgh Fringe, to the Bloomsbury Theatre, for your London-based viewing pleasure. I’m being extremely serious when I say you must not miss this, see this page here to book.

No Show | Arcola Theatre | 19-21 Mar
A play about Josh and his dad, both of whom have been attempting to get over the tragic loss of Josh’s mum, and do it by focusing on their shared love of horror films. But as Josh grows, so does the pressure to leave home, and it changes the dynamic of their relationship. Sounds like a great exploration of where the line lies between carer and cared-for, and the importance of support networks in dealing with grief and mental illness. See the venue website here for more.

Sara Schaefer – Little White Box | Soho Theatre | 19-31 Mar (pictured)
As the blurb notes, Sara Schaefer “is an Emmy-award winning comedian who hosted her own talk show Nikki & Sara Live on MTV, has appeared on Comedy Central, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’” but if you’re not abreast of who all the American comedians are, then it’s entirely possible you haven’t come across her work. Time to get acquainted, via this personal and political show. Head this way for all the details.
