Spring Reign | The Albany | 24 May
“In the besieged city of Aleppo, Salah and Aisha have lost control of their lives and are falling headlong into an uncertain future. The Syria they hoped to change is gone. In its place there is only violence and destruction. How will they survive as they fall further away from hope, from what they know and from what they used to be?” Important, timely, a story based on real life accounts from  refugees, aid workers, activists, and journalists.

My World Has Exploded A Little Bit | Ovalhouse | 23-27 May
Our reviewer up in Edinburgh last summer loved this show, a play about bereavement and coping with the death of a loved one from writer and performer Bella Heesom. It’s funny and energetic, despite the profound and heartbreaking themes, and I am one hundred percent sure you will love it. Of course, you might already have seen it, at edfringe or Vault Festival earlier in the year, but if so, you know how good it is, so tell all your friends to go as well. See the venue website here for more.

The Mikado | Richmond Theatre | 23-27 May (pictured)
Following on from her productions of ‘H.M.S. Pinafore’ and ‘The Pirates of Penzance’, acclaimed and award winning director Sasha Regan returns with another all male Gilbert & Sullivan. This time it’s ‘The Mikado’ benefiting from her light touch and the humour that emerges from the device of “mucking about with gender”, as it’s known round these parts. Head this way for all the details and to book.
