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

The Island Nation | Arcola Theatre | 26 Oct-19 Nov
“Nila, a young Tamil woman, is trapped in rebel-held territory. Rebecca, a British aid worker, is desperate to get her out. Erik, a Norwegian politician, thinks he has a plan for peace. But nothing is certain – and nobody is safe.” This revealing new drama from Christine Bacon is set in Sri Lanka in 2009, as the 26-year civil war between the government and the Tamil Tigers comes to an end. Potentially shocking, important subject matter. See this page here for info.

Bourgeois and Maurice – How To Save The World Without Really Trying | Soho Theatre | 17-29 Oct (pictured)
Let’s just say this is a reminder to all to not forget about this show and see it before the end of the run, given that there are only a few performances left as of today. The much loved musical satirists present their latest hit, “digging their shellac nails deep into our post-modern, post-gender, post-Brexit world the demented duo to deliver their most hilarious, scathing and joyfully cynical show yet”. Hurrah, quick, don’t miss.

Farewell Tim | Pleasance Theatre | 27-28 Oct
Tim has died in a freak accident, and his friends are left behind to make funny in his honour. Our reviewer up in Edinburgh completely loved this show from narrative sketch duo The Good News, and she’s that one I was talking about the other day, you know, the one who is never ever wrong. Hope I’m not giving her too much to live up to, she might start to get stressed. Anyway, trust her, and me, and book your tickets here.
