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

Big Wow Small Wonder | Canada Water Culture Space | 20 May
“Justin is the smallest boy in the whole town. So small that he can swim with goldfish. So small his sister takes him to school in her lunchbox. So small the class bully wants to catch him and keep him as his new pet.” Hurrah, it’s Saturday, time to take your little ones to something nice, so perhaps this one – a show full of humour, poetry and original music?

Rapunzel and the Tower Of Doom | The Cockpit | 20 May
And, if you are looking for a family show this weekend, here’s another option, from the always good Theatre Of Widdershins. Rapunzel, as you can imagine, is having a very, very bad hair day in a show which promises to tell the traditional tale with “plenty of body, volume and loads of highlights” . Head ye this directionwards for info.

Black Cat Cabaret | Underbelly Festival | 20 May-22 Sep (pictured)
Right, put the kids to bed now, it’s time for the grown ups to go out and have some fun. And I’d recommend this, the first in a new season of shows from Black Cat Cabaret, returning to Southbank for a fourth year. One of our utter all time cabaret heroes Dusty Limits hosts it, and we interviewed him about Black Cat and other things not that long ago, you can read it here, if you like. Expect Belle Epoque style excellence, go this way to book.
