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

Leaf | New Diorama | 25 Nov
“Mark is a chemical engineer. He loves chess. He lives with his mum.
A teaching assistant has had it up to here with her own conscience. A caretaker grows tired of childrens’ vomit.Unfortunately, their story is constantly being interrupted by chaotic sketches.” This does sound odd, but definitely entertaining, and I have heard good things from people I know.

The Velveteen Rabbit | Unicorn Theatre | 17 Nov-31 Dec
‘The Velveteen Rabbit’ has returned to the Unicorn Theatre, and what a good thing, because I expect you’re increasingly looking for nice, and possibly pre-Christmassy ways to entertain young children inside rather than outside. This is a lovely and much acclaimed production and is suitable for children over five, plus, it’s very much the kind of show that grown-ups will also enjoy, because it’s just, well, really good theatre. See the venue website here to book.

Rapunzel | Chickenshed | 22 Nov-6 Jan (pictured)
And if you’ve already seen ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’, or you know, just want to see this instead, because it will no doubt be just as good if different, here’s another one for the small people in your life. This is a new musical version of the ‘Rapunzel’ story, which promises to be “mysterious, romantic and life-affirming” and those are all things we like. Head this way for details.
