Regional Room – Sebastian HW / Charlotte Blackburn | ArtsDepot | 25 May
ArtsDepot’s festival of ideas Regional Room focuses on two nights of new work by established and emerging artists based outside of London. This evening you can see Sebastian HW’s ‘Chokolatul’, an interactive theatre show involving cooking, cabaret and performance art, and dealing with the primary theme of growing up mixed race in the UK, plus Charlotte Blackburn’s work in progress about “a proppa lady’s night out”. See the venue website here for details.

The Last Word | The Roundhouse | 25 May-10 June
And more festival stuff now, specifically over at Roundhouse, where the venue’s Last Word series of events – “where spoken word, theatre and gigs collide” – kicks off today. Proceedings begin with the Roundhouse poetry slam, but don’t go thinking that’s all that’s on. Click here for a great long list of fabulous workshops and performances involving the likes of Francesca Beard, Sabrina Mahfouz, Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu, Caleb Femi, Testament, Jack Rooke and Tongue Fu.

Chummy | White Bear Theatre | 23 May-10 Jun (pictured)
“Private investigator Jackie Striker is hired by an anonymous serial killer for the biggest case of her life. Paid to stop him murdering, Jackie must face the consequences of counselling the mysterious ‘Chummy’ on a dark journey that will push her to her limits.” A rather interesting sounding piece of dark and cinematic neo-noir thrilleryness, that promises to be quite the theatrical experience.
