And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
On The Night | Arcola Theatre | 26 Mar
We like this kind of thing. In their own words: “Using a team of industry professionals we are proud to showcase writers work to an audience, allowing them to see fifteen minutes of whatever the writer has chosen. We grab some savvy actors and brilliant directors and present an evening of varied, eclectic work that we hope entertains and excites but also allows our chosen writers the chance to learn, develop and see their words brought to life”. Fantastic, head this way for more.
Ingo’s War | Etcetera Theatre | 26 Mar
I think this sounds lovely, not least because its about an animal. Ingo is a dog living with a loving owner in the city of London, but war is on the horizon and the Blitz soon threatens his happy and comfortable life. He ends up plunged into a difficult adventure, seeing the war from all angles, coming face to face with its dangers, and finding his courage. Told by Ditto Theatre company via the medium of storytelling, puppetry and movement. An excellent choice for a family outing, I reckon, see this page here for tickets.
A Regular Little Houdini | King’s Head Theatre | 26-27 Mar (pictured)
This one man play, written and performed by Daniel Llewelyn-Williams, is set in Newport, South Wales, at the turn of the last century and is a coming of age piece about a dock-worker’s son who idolises Harry Houdini and opts to become a magician. Edwardian Britain, as you’ll probably already appreciate, isn’t the best place to try and kick-start an entertainment career when you’re bogged down by poverty and the trials of working-class life. It’s had lots of good reviews, this one, so don’t miss this short run. Click here for details.
