Refugee Week Double Bill | Battersea Arts Centre | 22-24 Jun
A double bill of film and live performance marking Refugee Week, with box office proceeds going to Universal Language: I Speak Football, a local organisation that empowers young people who have English as their second language. The film, ‘London Stories: Made By Migrants’ tells the stories of people from all over the world who have made London their home, while the performance, ‘Still Waiting’ focuses on personal experiences in the Calais refugee camp. See this page here for more information.

Abigoliah Schamaun – Namaste, Bitches | Camden Comedy Club | 22 Jun (pictured)
“What’s the point in pursuing enlightenment when you could just put your feet up & knock back a bourbon? And what passes for happiness these days? Abigoliah is a certified Bikram Yoga instructor; she’s run marathons and Tough Mudders, participated in Crossfit competitions… why would she bother when you’re just as likely to find those sweet endorphins at the bottom of a pint glass?” The very excellent Abigoliah Schamaun tackles our relationship with wellness and happiness with no-doubt hilarious results. Head this way for details.

Mad Man Sad Woman | The Space | 20 Jun-8 Jul
This powerful play from award-winning Chilean playwright Juan Radrigán gets a UK premiere, and it’s quite timely, actually, given the themes: the focus of the play is on the plight of those forced to live on the margins of society, which seems highly pertinent, given the recent effects of austerity on our own country, and fact that it’s starting to look like people have had enough.
