And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Alfie Brown – Scissor | Soho Theatre | 20-25 Feb
“Critically acclaimed Brown, known for being satirical, grotesque and fucked returns. He’ll be exploring alcohol, the Middle East and something hideous about our socialised collective sexual repression.” I suspect he’s a bit like Marmite, but we love him, and that’s that, and you should all go with our opinion on this matter. See this page here for more.
The Cherry Orchard | Arcola Theatre | 15 Feb-25 Mar
It’s been on for a few days already but there’s still lots of time to see Arcola’s production of Trevor Griffiths’ acclaimed English version of Anton Chekhov’s beloved masterpiece. The venue’s talented artistic director Mehmet Ergen is at the helm for this one, so it’s in great hands. Head this way for details.
Trumpets and Raspberries | Chickenshed | 7 Feb-4 Mar (pictured)
And this has been on for even longer than ‘The Cherry Orchard’, but you’ve still got a number of chances to see this staging of the Dario Fo’s customarily hilarious and satirical physical comedy. Stars the excellent Rob Crouch, and has received some very positive criticism, see the venue website here for info.
