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

Donors | Theatre N16 | 27-20 Sep
Roy and Linda meet in a fertility clinic, in this two hander that promises a fresh, poignant and comedic look at the intense, human desire to become a parent. “Desperate times call for desperate measures when your biological clock is ticking. After all, our sole purpose is to reproduce…right?” See this page here for more.

The Tempest | Greenwich Theatre | 27-30 Sep
This sounds like a rather different and compelling version of ‘The Tempest’ than I have ever seen before, featuring as it does contemporary African choreography from Shyne Phiri and an original soundtrack that samples traditional Malawian music. It’s brought to you by Bilimankhwe Arts, a company who bring together artists from Africa and Europe to create works that cross cultural boundaries. Brilliant. Head this way to book your tickets.

Fox | Old Red Lion Theatre | 26 Sep-14 Oct
“Rachel and Stefan are in love. So they say. But they are woken each night by the screams of foxes outside their flat. Cracks in their relationship begin to show as they start to understand who they really are.” This new play by Harrison Rose offers an examination of intimate relationships, asking the question of whether we ever truly get to know those who are close to us, given that they probably only show us what they want to show. Expect something dark, funny and honest, see the venue website here for info.
