Enticement Machine | Camden People’s Theatre | 23 Jan (pictured)
Yes, and yay, the Calm Down Dear festival of innovative feminist schizzle is still a-ongoing over at the Camden People’s Theatre, and this is our latest pick from it: a performance from Vanessa Macaulay exploring and interrogating the hyper-sexualisation of the black female body in pop culture, which draws on make-up tutorials, music videos and twerking to create a parody that exposes the expectations placed on them.

Daphne – The Best Of Daphne | Soho Theatre | 22-27 Jan
You probably know of Daphne – aka Phil Wang, Jason Forbes and George Fouracres – and may have seen their award winning sketch work in the past. You have perhaps seen both the shows that these ‘best bits’ are taken from. But you know, they are the best bits, so even if you have already seen them, they’re probably worth seeing again. And if you haven’t seen anything yet? Take it from us, these guys are good. Get ye hence to book your tickets.

SLAM Soaps | Arcola Theatre | 23-27 Jan
“Five writers have ten minutes each to impress you. They’ll present the opening section of their next big thing. You’ll cast a vote for your favourite. They’ll need to entertain your socks off, finish with a bang and leave the drum line of EastEnders ringing in your ears. Because only TWO of them will make it through to the following night. Until the grand finale on Saturday 27 January: where those who made it the furthest will go head to head.” Wow, this sounds fun, doesn’t it? Click here for more.
