Amici In Rep | Lyric Hammersmith | 23-27 May (pictured)
The Lyric’s resident dance troupe, the venerable, acclaimed and integrated Amici Dance Theatre Company reprise two of their excellent shows in rep: ’35 Amici Drive’, first staged in 2015 as the group’s thirty-fifth anniversary show, which is about a group’s fight against the destruction of their homes; and ‘Tightrope’, their thirtieth anniversary show, about a circus company struggling to survive. See this page here for all the details.

Digs | Camden People’s Theatre | 23-24 May
Theatre With Legs, aka Jess Murrain and Lucy Bairstow, have devised this piece focusing on generation rent, the housing crisis and human behaviour in the public and private space. Expect something funny yet pertinent, as the duo explore the topics of shared living, love and loneliness. For information and to book, see this page right about here.

Mummy | The Crazy Coqs | 23-25 May
“I suppose it’s the way we do it in Britain. Women don’t gather and weep for days; we don’t anoint the dead and bind them in swaddling; we don’t sit around a fire roasting rabbits or dance until we’re on the floor. We buy a sympathy card and send it. Or take round lasagna. I f**king hate lasagna.” Amy Gwilliam performs this acclaimed self-penned piece, the subject matter of which was inspired by the untimely death of her mother, TV comedy director Liddy Oldroyd.
