Me And My Bee | Pleasance Theatre | 24-28 Oct (pictured)
“Totally unpredictable and engrossing, this show sets a strong example of how children’s theatre can simultaneously playful and provoking.” Is what our reviewer said about this show when he saw it up at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer. So what exactly are you waiting for, parents of children who are not at school this week? Head this way for all the details.

Rattle Snake | Soho Theatre | 24-28 Oct
‘Rattle Snake’ is described as an “epic tale”, and is based on real life stories of women who have faced and survived controlling domestic abuse. Focusing on two women whose lives were changed by a chance meeting with one man, it’s the work of Open Clasp, a company who previously won acclaim and a Carol Tambor Award for their production ‘Key Change’. See the venue website here for more.

The Musicians Of Bremen | Jacksons Lane | 23-26 Oct
Another children’s show (half term, remember?), this one based on the tale by the Brothers Grimm, in which a quartet of beasts (a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster) all past their prime and discarded by their masters, band together for adventure followed by a happy ever after. This non-verbal performance from Compagnie Animotion features puppetry, movement, trapeze and live music, and promises to be a visual treat. Head this way for info.
