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

Frankenstein | Battersea Arts Centre | 22 Mar-7 Apr
“Using nothing but their mouths and a microphone, this talented and dynamic vocal collective present an electrifying poetic and political live concert of song, soundscape, improvised tracks and battles – exploring the idea of what makes a modern monster.” We missed the first few shows of this, I am not sure how, it somehow slipped down the list, but you’ve still got time to take in this fascinating piece of gig theatre from BAC Beatbox Academy. See this page here for more.

The Devil With The Blue Dress | The Bunker Theatre | 29 Mar-28 Apr
A play about the scandal that rocked the Clinton administration, the details of which are revealed to us by a First Lady, a secretary, a daughter, a confidant, and an intern, who take the audience on a journey through the corridors of power and behind closed doors. Seems like a well-timed staging, given the themes of the show, in the light of #metoo and a (fingers crossed, permanent) social shift in the way we’re viewing historic abuses of power. All the details are here.

Bisha K Ali presents Comedians She Loves | Camden Comedy Club | 29 Mar
You are probably much aware of Bisha K Ali, her work as a writer and comedian, and the fact that she’s been in the final of Funny Women. You might even know that she does this regular night at Camden Comedy Club, and have been to it before. I was moved to mention this edition in particular because of a tweet in which Ali announced that amongst her guests this time would be acts that rhyme with Bosie Bong and Bonnie and The Jabwisps. Now who on earth could they be? Some TW faves, peut-etre? Head this way to book.
