And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Sophie Willan – On Record | Soho Theatre | 21-29 Apr
Sophie Willan grew up in and out of the care system, and at the age of 23, unexpectedly took receipt of all of her personal files. It is these files which form the backbone of this show, as the up and coming comedian explores who she is via the opinions and observations of those who assessed her as she made her way towards adulthood. This did very well in Edinburgh last summer, expect high quality entertainment. See this page here for more.
Bubble Schmeisis | Battersea Arts Centre | 21-22 Apr
You may already know that we are fans of ‘Bubble Schmeisis’ and its clever creator Nick Cassenbaum – we recently published a very readable Q&A with him – and in which case it won’t surprise you that we are keen to recommend that you take in the show on one of these upcoming dates. He’s a lovely storyteller, and this offers an intimate and personal experience focused on finding a cultural identity. Click here for info.
City Of Glass | Lyric Hammersmith | 20 Apr-20 May
“When reclusive crime writer Daniel Quinn receives a mysterious call seeking a private detective in the middle of the night, he quickly and unwittingly becomes the protagonist in a thriller of his own. As the familiar territory of the noir detective genre gives way to something altogether more disturbing, Quinn becomes consumed by his mission, and begins to lose his grip on reality.” A theatrical adaptation of a Paul Auster novel, being brought to the stage in a very promising sounding manner. See the venue website here for details.
