Glenn Moore – Glenn Glenn Glenn, How Do You Like It, How Do You Like It | Soho Theatre | 19-24 Nov
You might remember that a few times in the past we decided to spend a whole Monday over at Soho Theatre because there were three shows starting and we really wanted to tip all of them…? Well, I haven’t done it for a while now so I thought it was okay to do it again. You know, because I wanted to tip three Soho shows. And here is the first one: acclaimed Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Glenn Moore and his show with an incredibly long title. See this page here for more.

Crick Crack Club – News Of The Strange | Soho Theatre | 19 Nov
If you’ve taken our advice in the past you will be no stranger to the delight of Crick Crack Club events, and here’s the latest, at Soho for one night only. “A blacksmith batters himself with his hammer. A fisherman throws back the fish he catches. A blind man begs passers-by to strike him. Shot through with powerful, mysterious images, Daniel Morden delves deep into lesser-known stories from the Arab world, some moving, some shocking, some bizarre, some ridiculous…. all of them strange.” See the venue website here for info.

Dr Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman | Soho Theatre | 19-24 Nov (pictured)
We heard about this one first at the Edinburgh festival in 2017, and were so delighted and intrigued by the sound of it that we did a lovely feature about it, and you can read that right about here, if you feel so inclined. If you don’t feel so inclined, here’s what it is in a nutshell: “Putting the magic back into menstruation, Dr Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman uncovers the last unmentionable taboo: menstruation, in an all-out genre bending contemporary performance spectacular.” Details here.
