The Understudy | Canal Cafe Theatre | 21 Feb-11 Mar
It’s a UK premiere for this show about not really being in a show from playwright, novelist and US TV writer Theresa Rebeck, who offers an interesting and pertinent examination of the state of contemporary theatre and the relationship between theatre and film.

Max and Ivan – Our Story | Soho Theatre | 20 Feb-4 Mar
You probably know by now that we are Max and Ivan fans, and that we have been following their career with interest. This latest show is the one they took to Edinburgh this summer, and, as you can tell from the title, in this show, they play their own actual selves, telling a story of how the duo met. For details, see the venue website here.
