Horny Handed Tons Of Soil | New Diorama | 29-30 Apr (pictured)
Yes, you surely know that I was attracted to this show because of it’s clever title, but, hurrah, that doesn’t mean that the content will be any less than top class. It’s been created by award winner Lizzie Nunnery and was inspired by the work of Mersey poet Adrian Henri, and mixes beat poetry with folk song, electronic composition with live brass and percussion, and documentary film with theatrical storytelling.

Bites and Scratches | Arcola Theatre | 29 Apr
Another night of new stuff from new talent and, gosh, yes, we like these. This one comes from Fine Mess, who present their sixth showcase since 2014, featuring work from five different playwrights. As you’ll see from the blurb here, the group have developed work by a host of playwrights including the likes of Anna Jordan, Rob Hayes, Sarah Page, Camilla Whitehill, Afsaneh Gray, Isley Lynn, Duncan Gates, Oli Forsyth and Milly Thomas, so it’s safe to say they’ve some experience in these matters… details here.

Wet | Theatre N16 | 29 Apr-3 May
“Holly and Sophie are frustrated. They’re frustrated by their failing careers as filmmakers, frustrated about how absurdly expensive life is in London, and also frustrated by their sex lives. In an attempt to do something about it they decide to write a feminist porn film, wrestling with their own sexual neurosis along the way.” A very intriguing sounding play looking at how women relate to porn and to their own sexuality, see this page here to book tickets.
