And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Ivy Davies – Play Ground | Wilton’s Music Hall | 29-31 Mar (pictured)
Performance poet Ivy Davies has realised she has been living upside down, and has decided that things need to be turned around. It looks to me like this will be a lovely, intimate sort of performance, and promises a “magical journey through time and space, weaving spoken word and song together in this one woman show”. Aces. See this page here for all the info.
Our Carnal Hearts | The Albany Deptford | 29-30 Mar
The excellent Rachel Mars is the brain behind this piece celebrating the darker side of our human selves – our propensity for envy, our competitive spirits, the tendency to screw each other over… it’s supported by a live surround-sound choral score, composed by the brilliant Louise Mothersole, and comes to you in a much practised state, as it’s been touring the US and the UK.

Shirley & Shirley | Greenwich Theatre | 29 Mar
The very brilliant pairing that is Shirley & Shirley do great sketches and fantastic characters, and we first found them, as you might not be surprised to hear, quite a few years ago up at ye old edfringe. Here’s your chance to see them in action just south of the river, not least because, as they point out, they are “without a doubt the best British-Surinamese, Irish-Palestinian double act working on the comedy circuit today.” See the venue website here for more.
