And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Chiggerfoot Boys | Tara Theatre | 22 Feb-11 Mar
“Based on true events in the lives of Jamaicans who fought in World War One and set amid the banter in a rum bar near Kingston Harbour, four young men tell their stories of death and glory as the end of the British Empire looms.” Tickets are going quickly for this very promising production that offers “an intoxicating cocktail of love, duty, death and dominoes”, so don’t hang about, get your tickets here.
Denmarked | Battersea Arts Centre | 22 Feb-11 Mar
Making a return to Battersea Arts Centre, this combination of hip-hop and theatre, created by the excellent Conrad Murray and directed by the brilliant Ria Parry, offers personal heartfelt tales from the council estate: of that first and significant arrest, of dodgy mates, of dinner with a social worker, and of the Christmas dad went to prison. An exploration of how life’s events shape us, it’s truthful and raw, yet with an injection of humour. See this page here for info.
Helen Duff – When The Going Gets Duff | Vault Festival | 22-26 Feb (pictured)
The fabulously fabulous clownster Helen Duff is one of those we came into contact with up via her appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe (you can read the interview we did with her last summer if you click this link right here). We love her, so will expect the best (and much silliness) from her Vault Festival contribution. For all the details head this way.
