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

Little Women | The Space | 27 Nov-15 Dec
One of my childhood favourite reads makes its way to a stage near you, which is awesome, and a nice thing to take in for a pre-Christmas treat, I reckon, not least because the story begins at Christmas. “Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy are up late, plotting what to get their Ma as a present and spying on their new wealthy neighbour. They bicker. They cheer. Sisters who can’t live without each other. But all this is about to change.” Information right about here.

A Hero Of Our Time | Arcola Theatre | 19 Nov-15 Nov
“Pechorin, a resting soldier, amuses himself in a dull town by competing with his friend Grushnitsky over the affections of the young princess Mary. As the game grows crueller and more calculating, intimate thoughts are laid unflinchingly bare. Welcome into the mind of a soldier, where bars and ballrooms become battlefields.” A show from an international company that did brilliantly up at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. See this page here for all the details.

Oh, and another edfringe success, I didn’t quite realise I had picked two of those for today. This is another goodie: “a story in which two souls from different worlds offer one another a new chance – at life and at laughter. Old age and the pains that come with it do not make one invisible; rather, with a bit of effort and a lot of kindness, a wealth of stories are there to be shared… even if some are repeated a few times.” Head this way for more.
