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

Breakaway | Cockpit Theatre | 21-22 Aug
I won’t deny that my hackles went up a bit when I read through the description of this show, because it seemed to me to imply that somehow it’s men who need to escape from their crappy lives with women and children, but I’m hoping it’s just badly worded because it sounds super, a story of bored office workers with mundane lives reliving the highlights of their childhood. See this page here for info.

Thlides | The Lion and Unicorn | 21-23 Aug
This sounds really weird, but you know, sometimes that’s a really good thing. It is, to be fair, described as a surreal dark comedy. “Spawny John, an army veteran, and Duck, an inflatable duck, sit halfway down a Butlins water slide. But they’re not the only ones looking to do a spot of sliding today.” Yes, that is a bit wacky, isn’t it? Bet you’d like the link, wouldn’t you?

Royal Hunter | Camden People’s Theatre | 21-26 Aug (pictured)
And so to yet another interesting sounding show over at ye olde Camden Fringe. This is a comical one woman piece, a fictional account of a woman meeting Prince Harry via Tinder, and the inevitable Royal struggles that follow. See this page here for more info.
