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

Full Circle | Theatre N16 | 21-24 May (pictured)
This piece from Black Sheep Theatre, written by Madelaine Cunningham, brings together four notorious heroines of Greek mythology: Phaedra, Helen, Medea, and Clytemnestra. Torn away from their usual roles in their relative tragedies, they fight in purgatory for their own salvation, as the piece explores gender politics and what it means to be a woman. See the venue website here for info.

Knightmare Live | Underbelly Festival | 21 May-11 Jun
There’s a chance you’ve already taken in the Knightmare Live experience, given its successful runs at the old edfringe and at Underbelly Festival here in London last summer. But the brilliant thing is that it doesn’t matter whether you have been or not, because you can always go again. The acclaimed comedy take on the cult TV classic offers a different show every time, so there’s no reason to hold back. See this page here for details.

The 6 Vitelloni |  Old Red Lion Theatre | 21-22 May
“Vitelloni are parasites who live at the borders of society. They don’t work, they don’t produce. Sometimes, unfortunately, they procreate. With no money, they survive by what they manage to take from women they seduce and friends who they deceive by using their charm.” This scratch night of theatrical inspired by influential filmmaker Federico Fellini (and presumably his film ‘I Vitelloni’) sounds intriguing, head this way to find out more.
