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

The B*easts | Bush Theatre | 26-28 Jul
Another Edfringe preview over at The Bush, this time a show written by and starring Bafta-winner Monica Dolan, which explores a topic that’s been bothering me for quite a while – the ‘pornification’ of our culture and the sexualisation of children. The play, directed by John Hoggarth, takes a look at how far one mother is prepared to go in order to ensure that what her child wants comes first. See this page here for all the info.

Lovestuck – A New Musical | The Cockpit | 25-30 Jul
This promising sounding new musical, written by Adam Wollerton with music by PJ Nielsen and Jake Few, tells the story of Charlie, who is just starting life at university, and meets two new friends, Lily and Jake. The show follows the trio through the ups and downs of undergraduate life, covering themes like sexuality, drugs and video games. Head this way to book tickets.

Rabbits | Park Theatre | 26 Jul-19 Aug (pictured)
“Susan is dangerously lonely. Frank is obsessed with hats. Their marriage is on the rocks but Frank has a plan to spice things up. He’s taking their pet rabbit to be murdered – by a psychopath”. Argh. Well, this sounds a bit dark, but the show is described as a black comedy, so fair enough, I guess, but I really hope the rabbit survives. It’s the playwright Joe Hampson’s stage debut, as he’s better known for his radio and screen writing, and it’s got a great cast. Click here for details.
