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

I Am Beast | Greenwich Theatre | 22 May (pictured)
“What happens when the wildest parts of our imagination take control? After the death of her mother, Ellie escapes to a flickering world of comic book superheroes and bewitching strangers. But as the walls of her new world begin to crumble, Ellie must finally face the truth behind her fantasies.” The very brilliant company Sparkle and Dark, who may have blown your socks off (mine never came back) with previous production ‘Killing Roger’, are back on tour with this award winning piece, see this link here.

A Lie Of The Mind | Southwark Playhouse | 4-27 May
There’s less than a week left to see this production of Sam Shepard’s ‘A Lie Of The Mind’, which has a great cast including highly established stage/screen actors Gethin Anthony, Alexandra Dowling, Kate Fahy and up and coming Downton type Michael Fox, who has been singled out for his strong performance in this. The show has had a number of highly positive reviews, so see the venue website here for more.

Comedy In The Dark | Underbelly Festival | 1 May-3 Jul
A pretty unique experience (unless you’ve been before) and definitely a very apt occasion to adapt a hackneyed phrase: “It’s the most fun you can have with the lights switched off”. This acclaimed comedy night always has great line ups and of course this week’s is no exception:  Paul Foot, Twayna Mayne, Joey Page, and Paul Sinha are on the bill, head this way for details.
