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

Echoes | Tristan Bates Theatre | 27 Aug-8 Sep
“A few years from now, in the aftermath of a devastating, deliberate bomb blast which has ruined a nation, two men stare each other down across a table, deep underground. In a world where false logic gives the cruellest of plans its defenders, where fake news is more believable than the truth, these two unlikely survivors face off against each other: polar opposite sides of an argument.” This sounds rather interesting. See this page here for details.

Yes, I’ve definitely tipped this show before, and last time I did it, I probably said “I’ve tipped this show before” (maybe) but I don’t really care, because I would tip this show again and again until every child of the right sort of age has seen it. To be fair, I’d go and see it without a child, no problem. Anyway, if this doesn’t convince you, what will? Maybe heading to this page here to find out more.

Welcome Home | Old Red Lion | 26-27 Aug
This is only on for a couple of days, but it caught my eye with its really interesting subject matter – where our relationship with artificial intelligence is headed. To be fair, it’s one that’s getting a lot of exploration in media and culture these days but it’s an interesting topic, and one that deserves the attention. Anyway, this is about two women living in a house that has a “home assistant” installed, one of them embracing the technology, the other feeling sceptical about the notion of “sentient tech”.
