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

Finding Fassbender | The Bunker Theatre | 28 Jul
Right, you know how we’ve been tipping lots of Edinburgh previews? Well, today, it’s all Edinburgh previews, and that’s really evidence of just how many are going on all over the capital, not me especially trying to make a theme of it today. Anyway, here’s the first one, directed by Blythe Stewart, and described as “one woman’s misadventure as she tries to carve out a life on her own terms”. It’s one of quite a few that The Bunker are squeezing into just a couple of days, so have a look at the what’s on page here for others, but info on this show is here.

Great British Mysteries – 1599? | Museum Of Comedy | 28 Jul
“Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you prefer Thomas More to Roger Moore? The follow-up to 2017’s sold out debut, but set 400 years earlier. Confused? You will be.” Hurrah, so glad to see this pairing back with this ‘sequel’ to their very successful contribution to last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Don’t miss this, especially if you’re not likely to get up north this August. All the details are right about here on the Museum Of Comedy website.

And so to our final edfringe preview of the day, the work of Stumble Trip Theatre, an acclaimed company of Lecoq-trained clowns. Here they use mime, cabaret, theatre and rap to explore what it means to be human, and to love: “Heather is cast from heaven by her husband Zeus. Finding herself in the midst of London’s very sad, mad, bad inhabitants, she seeks solace in the lonely cockney philosopher Harry. Harry shows Heather proof of beauty and love amid the chaos.” See this page here for more.
