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

The Collector | The Vaults Theatre | 2-28 Aug
This adaptation of the John Fowles novel of the same name makes its way to the atmospheric Vaults Theatre this week (we are contractually obliged to refer to The Vaults as ‘atmospheric’) boasting a cast with some significant TV appearances on their CVs. The play tells the story of a lonely butterfly collector who becomes obsessed with a beautiful art student, and is a tense psychological thriller. For more info see this page here.

Worst Case Scenario | Cockpit Theatre | 3-6 Aug (pictured)
Our latest choice from the veritable banquet currently on offer courtesy of Camden Fringe is ‘Worst Case Scenario, a comedy devised by a company of world performance students at the East15 Acting School in 2015. It sounds like it has an odd, dream-like narrative, as the fate of the last surviving dodo is decided by a community of animals – and that seems fascinating. Head this way for more detail.

Rory Scovel | The Invisible Dot | 1-4 Aug
US comedian Rory Scovel makes his UK debut at The Invisible Dot this week, and I reckon he is a talent definitely worth checking out, as he’s been the subject of much praise and acclaim in his home country, and has clocked up a number of significant support gigs and TV appearances. Quick, book your tickets here, before you can’t afford him any more.
