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

Paines Plough Roundabout | Orange Tree Theatre | 25 Jan-3 Mar
Three plays from the Paines Plough Roundabout, each tried and tested up in Edinburgh last summer, each critically acclaimed, playing in rep. ‘Out Of Love’ by Elinor Cook, ‘Black Mountain’ by Brad Birch, and ‘How To Be A Kid’ by Sarah McDonald Hughes. Take your pick, or see all three. Actually, see all three, guaranteed not a waste of time. See this page here for info and booking links.

Kwame Asante – Open Arms | Soho Theatre | 25-27 Jan (pictured)
As you may have noticed, it’s the season for Edinburgh Comedy Award Newcomer nominees to rock up at and rock the Soho Theatre. This time we’re tipping the excellent Kwame Asante, who respectfully asks for your help with processing all the changes that have affected him in the last few years – moving to a new city, starting a new career, and gaining new responsibilities. See the venue website here for details, and hurry, tickets are going fast.

Vu | Shoreditch Town Hall | 25-27 Jan
“A man attempts to make the perfect cup of tea. It’s a delicate and obsessively ordered process. You may yourself become addicted, or never want to see another cup of tea again. Either way, you’ll laugh out loud.” Another brilliant sounding show from the London International Mime Festival, which ends in a few days time. Quick, see some mime, while you can.
