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

Cathy | Soho Theatre | 27 Mar-14 Apr
This is inspired, fifty years on, by Ken Loach’s seminal film ‘Cathy Come Home’, and, as you might expect, it explores homelessness in more contemporary times, when spiralling housing costs, gentrification and forced relocation are all factors. It was a bit of a hit at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and our extremely experienced and discerning reviewer gave it a highly positive write up. So all in all, I think you’d be wise to follow this link to book some tickets.

George Egg – DIY Chef | Soho Theatre | 28-31 Mar
And we’re staying at Soho Theatre (inadvertently, I confess, it wasn’t a deliberate theme for today, as you’ll see as you make your way to number three) for the latest culinary themed offering from acclaimed ‘anarchist cook’ George Egg. Banned from the family kitchen, George relocates to the garden shed and builds an improvised kitchen there instead, in this evening of stand-up, live cooking and comedy lecture. All the details are here.

Dominoes | Stratford Circus Arts Centre | 28-29 Mar (pictured)
“Mixed race history teacher Layla McKinnon is days away from saying ‘I do’ to Andy McKinnon. Already having the same surname as her fiancé used to be just a funny coincidence but now it threatens to drive them apart. Piecing together her family tree, she tries to hold onto her best friend and her husband-to-be and find out who she is and where she fits in.” A promising-looking one woman show about how the past can affect the future.
