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

The Believers Are But Brothers | Bush Theatre | 24 Jan-10 Feb (pictured)
This one man show met with a lot of critical acclaim in Edinburgh in the summer of 2017 and deals with the very important and pressing issue of what happens when disaffected young men – a generation who “find themselves burning with resentment; without the money, power and sex they think they deserve” – come together on the internet. It’s interactive, immediate, and frankly, a bit scary. But I think you need to see it, so book your tickets here.

There Or Here | Park Theatre | 23 Jan-17 Feb
A poignant comedy by Jennifer Maisel about a couple, Robyn and Ajay, who are not able to have a child of their own and so look to Ajay’s birth country, India, to ‘outsource’ their pregnancy. Meanwhile, their relationship falters because they are unable to communicate in these times when face to face interaction has become increasingly rare. All the details are right about here.

Woman Before A Glass | Jermyn Street Theatre | 17 Jan-3 Feb
“Peggy Guggenheim collected art — and artists. Married to Max Ernst, lover of Samuel Beckett, champion of Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso, Peggy’s love life was as colourful as her art collection. She moved to Venice in the late 1940s and quickly became one of its most glamorous, scandalous residents.” I frankly meant to tip this excellent-sounding biographical piece much earlier in its run, but I am an idiot, sadly. On the upside, it will be well into its stride by now. Head this way for info and to book.
