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

Dealing With Clair | Orange Tree Theatre | 26 Oct -1 Dec
“Clair works in real estate. Mike and Liz are selling. James wants to buy. He’ll only deal with Clair.” A revival of Martin Crimp’s 1988 play, back at the Orange Tree Theatre after its premiere there thirty years ago. “Selling houses. It’s not forever. Who knows what I’ll do? Maybe make a killing and just… disappear. That’s right. Vanish.” See the venue website here for info and to book.

Soldier On | The Other Palace | 24 Oct-24 Nov (pictured)
This production returns to London following a sold out national tour to commemorate the end of the First World War, so you can expect something highly polished. It’s inspired by the true stories of British servicemen and women and their families, explores the emotional, mental and physical effects and stresses of modern military service, and stars a mixture of actors and former service personnel. All the details are here.

No Direction Home – Big Bang | Camden People’s Theatre | 29 Oct
One of CPT’s Big Bang nights of new in-progress selections, this one as part of No Direction Home and therefore on the theme of displacement, migration and refuge. The line up consists of ‘Ironing Out’ by Alleyway Radical Theatre, ‘Las Simples Cosas’ by Alex Etchart, ‘Holocaust Brunch’ by Tamara Micner, and ‘Dear Daughter’ by Segen Yosef.
