I’m Doing This For You | Canada Water Culture Space | 22 Mar (pictured)
We first heard of this show by Haley McGee when it was on at edfringe last summer, when our reviewer who saw it was very impressed, calling it “fiercely original” as well as “layered, intelligent and unique”. It’s not a conventional sort of performance, blending storytelling and live-art, part of an overarching conceit that your host has gone to great trouble to orchestrate your presence for the sake of the man she loves. See this page here for a clearer explanation, and to book tickets.

Escape The Scaffold | Theatre503 | 22 Mar-15 Apr
“A love triangle turns to betrayal as real life becomes a nightmare. The basement is slowly filling with water and there’s a monster in the house.” Three best friends hunker down together in their student house, and find themselves forced to make decisions that will mark them for the rest of their lives; in this dark, psychological thriller, love turns to betrayal and paranoia takes hold. Head this way for all the details.

Narvik | New Diorama | 21-25 Mar
The powerful story of a Liverpudlian man and a Norwegian woman pulled together and torn apart by war, brought to life by award winning playwright and song-writer Lizzie Nunnery, who was inspired by tales from naval veterans, and stories of her grandfather’s time in the Navy. It’s a physical and immersive piece, featuring original music by Vidar Norheim, Martin Heslop and Nunnery herself. Click here for more.
