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

A Strange New Space | Little Angel Theatre | 24-26 Jul
A one woman show telling the story of Amira, who is fascinated by space, and dreams of becoming an astronaut. One day, her mother tells her they must leave their home to go on an adventure in search of a safe new space to live, and Amira interprets her words as a signal that the longed for intergalactic trip is on the horizon. No words, just physical theatre and puppetry and music, aimed at children aged 4-9. I think it sounds excellent, see this page here for info.

Finding Nana | Soho Theatre | 24-25 Jul
“Room 17. Four walls full of lipstick, laughter, hairspray and Horlicks. Nana is nut brown and wrinkled with chicken fillets for arms. That’s what we say. And she treats me like I’m way more amazing than I actually am.” This autobiographical play by award winning up and comer Jane Upton is set in a seaside hotel, and explores the author’s loving relationship with her grandmother. See the venue website here for details.

Children Are Stinky | Underbelly Festival | 22-27 Jul (pictured)
And a second children’s show for today, but, you know, the school holidays have just begun, and you might as well start the summer with a cultural bang. The Australian creators of this second option wowed the discerning Edinburgh crowd with their hilarious acrobatic show last year, and now here they are in London to entertain more family audiences with their funny, daredevil antics and super soundtrack.
