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

Bookstory | Little Angel Theatre | 27 Sep-1 Oct (pictured)
“It’s a story, about some books. In a library. But these are no ordinary books and this is no ordinary library. It’s Brian’s library: a wonderful, magical place where the books like to flutter their pages and let their shelves go…Then one day Brian changes and the library goes…quiet. What’s going on? The books had better stiffen their spines: to get to the bottom of this mystery they may have to check themselves out.” Hurrah, a highly entertaining show for children about reading and libraries. Exactly what you need on a late September Saturday, click here for info.

Lucky Stiff | Union Theatre | 27 Sep-21 Oct
A production of ‘Lucky Stiff’, the first ever 1988 collaboration between Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, based on Michael Butterworth’s 1983 novel ‘The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo’, which I think was probably last on in London in the late nineties. But I might be wrong. Anyway, I am sure this will be good, see the venue website here for all the details.

Ahir Shah – Control | Soho Theatre | 26 Sep-7 Oct
Ahir Shah was nominated for the big comedy award up in Edinburgh this summer, so if you like to keep up with what all the comedy up and comers are up to (yes, too much ‘up’ in this sentence) then you should definitely make a point of seeing this highly praised show. In it he focuses on current global socio-political turmoil, freedom, fascism, history, hope, and resistance. Head this way to book your tickets.
