Friends For All | Canada Water Culture Space | 24-25 Mar
“Inspired by Grandad’s hippy stories from the swinging 60s, eight year old Lexi decides to fight the powers that be, namely her class teacher Mr Marsh and the class bully, Suzy.” An interactive spoken word performance about being an outsider, aimed at children of primary school age, performed by poet and rapper Simon Mole, who co-created it with Peader Kirk. See this page here for all the info.

Big Bang Sprint 2017 | Camden People’s Theatre | 24 Mar
If what you fancy today is a veritable smorgasbord of entertainment and artistic endeavour, a platform for the new, experimental and work in progress, then you’d better head over to Camden People’s Theatre for a Sprint edition of their well-established Big Bang showcase strand. Take a look at this link here for what to expect.

Seventeen | Lyric Hammersmith | 4 Mar-8 Apr (pictured)
Have you seen this yet? Because it’s been up and running for a while now and the reviews are very much in – most (not quite all) being highly complimentary. It’s a new play from Australian writer Matthew Whittet, and sees a cast of 60-something actors playing the roles of a bunch of seventeen and eighteen year olds. It’s not the first time adults have been cast as children, but it’s rare, and it’s interesting to see. See the venue website here for more.
