And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
JV2 | Lilian Baylis Studio | 21-22 Apr
An exciting-looking triple bill of dance pieces, two from up and coming choreographers, and one from the well established and award winning Jasmin Vardimon, whose company created JV2 with the aim of cultivating the talents of young emerging dancers via a professional development diploma. Tonight there’s also a post-show discussion with this year’s JV2 company led by Geoff Colman. See this page here for more.
All The Things I Lied About | Soho Theatre | 18 Apr-6 May
The brilliant Katie Bonna, co-creator of Fringe First winning show ‘Dirty Great Love Story’, is also the creator of a more recent Fringe hit, this ersatz TED talk exploring her past mistakes and what dire disasters to expect from the future with a view to showing how everyday lies might have led us to the “post truth era”. In which no-one seems to be able to do anything about people like Trump and Farage telling bare-faced fibs to try and steer their agenda. Sigh. See the venue website here for details.
Rubber Ring | Tristan Bates Theatre | 20-22 Apr
“Jimmy’s sixteen, sexually confused and stuck in Sheringham; the seaside town they forgot to bomb.

But enough about my take on the matter, what matters is that this critically acclaimed one-hander from Norfolk playwright James McDermott is really good. Click here for info.
