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

Testament | The Hope Theatre | 21-29 Oct
“In a beautifully put together show that blends reality, memory, and hallucination, Chalk Line’s play explores love, loss, and what it means to be left behind.” Is what our reviewer said about this show when she saw it in Edinburgh in August, leaving us in no doubt of her feelings about it. It’s a story of loss and grief centring on characters involved, and lost in, a car crash. It sounds dark, but take it from us, this will be both touching and memorable. See this page here for all the info.

TERP | Finborough Theatre | 21 Oct
Our latest pick from Finborough Theatre’s Vibrant festival line up: “2003. Basra, Iraq. For young Iraqi student Tawfeeq, the Second Gulf War is the chance to be a part of revolutionary change, an opportunity to help set all Iraqis free from the tyranny of Saddam’s reign. All he has to do is assist the Coalition Forces by being a terp – an interpreter. But that fateful decision is about to change his and his family’s life forever…” Head this way and scroll down.

Black Is The Colour Of My Voice | Greenwich Theatre | 21 Oct (pictured)
Here’s another show we’ve seen and loved in Edinburgh in recent years. Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed one woman show is inspired by the life of Nina Simone and depicts a singer seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father, reflecting on her journey from talented pianist expected to spend her life in the service of the church, to renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the civil rights movement. See the venue website here for details.
