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

Simon Munnery – Renegade Plumber | Soho Theatre | 3-7 Apr (pictured)
I thought we might start the day with a comedy performance, and what could be more appropriate than this amusingly titled show from seasoned, award winning veteran and TW favourite Simon Munnery. Expect “tales of plumbing woes, attempts at under tent heating, jokes, songs, poems and the ridicule of capitalism”, and see the venue website here for details.

Testosterone | Greenwich Theatre | 3 Apr
“Kit is in an amusing and unique position, having transitioned from female to male in his early thirties, he has experienced adult life on both sides of the gender fence, giving him the opportunity to notice what differences there are in how he is treated by society – what he gains and what he loses by becoming a man. However, his biggest challenge comes when he enters a male gym changing room for the first time and is confronted by masculinity in all its forms – the good, the bad and the ugly. What kind of man will he be when he finishes changing?” We’ve tipped it before and we’ll tip it again, given a chance, because it’s an acclaimed play from a brilliant company. Click here for more.

The Sleeper | The Space | 3-14 Apr
Another highly acclaimed piece, which, like ‘Testosterone’, has a very successful Edinburgh Festival Fringe run behind it. Created using the real testimony of Syrian refugees as well as the personal experiences of writer and director Henry C Crempels, it’s set on a sleeper train travelling through Europe, where Karina, a British writer, reports a refugee who has hidden in her bunk.
